Police officers were forced to direct traffic at one of Redbridge’s busiest junctions this morning after a van drove into a traffic light there.

A Met spokesman told the Recorder: “We were called shortly before 8am to reports of a road traffic collision at the junction of the A12 and Ley Street.

“Fortunately there do not appear to have been any injuries, but a van had driven into one of the junction’s traffic lights.

“There was lots of debris reported in the road, and officers were needed to marshall traffic until this could be cleared.”

Drivers are advised to expect delays before the junction heading into London for the next few hours.

Tailbacks were also reported on Ley Street and Horns Road.
