I was there today in the traffic being held at a standstill on the M40 just before Beaconsfield whilst they coned the road off, I hope everyone involved is okay, there was a lot of spray and standing water out there making conditions very poor.

I would just like to say that the people who decided to use the hard shoulder as an exit lane are total scum and I'm glad you were stopped by the police for your stupid thoughtless actions today.
Idiots beyond belief!!
