Woodford Avenue was closed southbound towards Gants Hill roundabout this afternoon after a man in his 50s was found lying in the road.

Emergency services closed part of the road for several hours, although they do not believe the man is injured.

A police spokesman told the Recorder: “A man has been lying in the road.

“It doesn’t look like he has been hit by a car.

“At first he couldn’t get up but the London Ambulance Service helped him.”

The road has since reopened.

The incident caused major delays around Gants Hill and Clayhall.
