A specialised load transporter due to carry an Airbus A321 aircraft fuselage through Wiltshire was postponed today due to high winds sweeping across the region.

The abnormal load was due to travel from MoD St Athan, near Barry, South Wales, across the Severn Bridge and up the M4 to Cotswold Airport, Kemble, near Cirencester.

Delays were expected during its journey along the M4 from Junction 18-15, before travelling North on the A419 towards Cirencester, then onto the A429 to arrive at Kemble.

A future date for the load to be transported is due to be set.
