Two lanes of traffic on the A406 in Ilford were blocked earlier by a lorry fire.

At about 1.30pm, TfL Traffic News (@TfLTraffic) tweeted: “A406 North Circular Rd southbound to Ilford Flyover and Barking Flyover - The road is reduced to one lane due to a lorry on fire. Qs to Redbridge.”

Shortly after 3pm, TfL said the road had been fully reopened, though queues still stretched back as far as Charlie Brown’s Roundabout.
