A man has been taken to "a heart attack centre" after a road crash in Barkingside. 

Emergency services were called at 9.16am this morning (July 20) to reports of a collision in Cranbrook Road. 

According to the Metropolitan Police, the driver is believed to have had a medical episode and veered off the road before striking a lamppost.

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said: “We sent an ambulance crew, two medics in fast response cars and an incident response officer to the scene.  

“Essex and Herts Air Ambulance was also dispatched. 

“We treated a man at the scene and took him by road to a heart attack centre as a priority.” 

A road closure was put into place in both directions along Cranbrook Road which has since been reopened.
