A TERRIFIED woman's escape ordeal in Slough may have been witnessed by members of the public.

Between 5pm and 7pm on Tuesday, October 23 a woman in her thirties was a passenger in a flatbed truck which was approaching the roundabout on Wexham Park Road near to the hospital.

She is understood to have got out of the truck as it slowed to 5mph and run towards the roundabout. As she tried to cross the road the man who had been driving the truck is believed to have got out and dragged her back inside.
