Drivers have been warned to expect delays on the A12 eastbound in Wanstead tonight while emergency services respond to a car crash involving a motorcyclist just before Redbridge Roundabout.

A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman confirmed officers were called to the A12 at 4.27pm today (January 10) , to reports of a collision between a motorcycle and a Volkswagen Polo.
