A woman has died after the car she was driving crashed with a lorry.

The 57-year-old was behind the wheel of an Audi A4 when the collision happened in Ascot shortly after 07:30 GMT on Monday.

The woman, from Bracknell, was pronounced dead in hospital. The lorry driver was not injured.

A 46-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of drug-driving, and causing death by careless driving. He has been released while inquiries continue.

Thames Valley Police urged witnesses to the crash - on the A330 Hatchet Lane junction with Forest Road - and anyone with dashcam footage to contact them.

PC Wayne Reece said: "It was a very busy time of the morning so we do think other people will have seen this incident."
