The fire brigade was called out at 3.40pm after the police were called at 3.35pm and the road was temporarily closed causing severe disruption.

The male driver involved in the incident, who was in a silver BMW, is in hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

A police helicopter attended the scene, along with a strong police presence on the ground.

The accident took place near the stretch of the A127 in Gallows Corner, Romford, which has seen series of recent car accidents.
