CARDBOARD boxes littering a major traffic rat run added to rush hour delays this morning.

Police said they were called at 8.55am after reports boxes and their contents all over the road heading south on the A404 Marlow bypass, near Handy Cross.

It is not yet known what the boxes contained, or whether a lorry had shed its load.

Temporary traffic lights and road resurfacing works have also added to drivers’ frustrations over the last few days and for the remainder of the week.
