MOTORISTS endured further delays on the roads this week as Hinkley Point lorries carrying abnormal loads made their way slowly through Bridgwater.

On Thursday a two-lorry convoy transporting massive earth-moving machines exited the M5 at J24 and travelled along Taunton Road and onto Broadway before heading for Cannington with a police escort clearing the way.

Earlier this week another abnormal load left Hinkley Point and came through town on its way to the motorway.
