Crash on the A406 leads to tailbacks in Ilford

09:09 21 January 2013

Traffic is building up in Ilford after a crash on the A406 this morning.

Two lanes are closed on the A406 northbound at its junction with the M11, just past the Redbridge Flyover.

The accident happened at about 8.15am and two lanes remain closed, causing queuing traffic back to Ilford.

It is not known how many cars were involved in the accident, but paramedics from the London Ambulance Service on their way to the scene were told they were no longer needed after no injuries were reported.

10am UPDATE: One of the two lanes has been reopened and Transport for London say traffic is now “flowing well”.
