Firefighters had to use their cutting tools to help a car user out of a vehicle.

“We were called to Otley Drive at 7.27am,” an LFB spokeswoman said.

“One woman that was trapped was taken to hospital and a man also injured was taken to hospital.

“It was all over for us at 8.19.”

A police cordon remained in place at all four crossroads by the mini roundabout.

Motorists were advised to find other routes on to the A12 and Cranbrook Road.

A Met Police spokesman confirmed firefighters had to cut through a roof to help a trapped woman and added: “We await news of her condition”.
