A pregnant woman due to get married tomorrow has been taken to hospital following a car crash this afternoon.
The woman, who is 31-weeks pregnant, was travelling to the Moat House Hotel, Sindlesham, for her wedding tomorrow with her fiancé and son when their Vauxhall Vectra swerved into a ditch in Lower Earley Way at around 4pm.

"We made the car, which was full of wedding stuff, safe.
"The woman complained of discomfort so we requested an ambulance."
The woman was taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading, by ambulance.
