Heavy police presence has led to one of Romford’s busiest roads being blocked off.

Rush Green Road is currently gridlocked after officers pulled over a car at 11.40am.

One witness said: “It’s mental, the whole road is blocked. There’s an amublance and police cars.”

Posting on twitter, Cllr Robert Benham urged people to avoid the road, saying a “serious incident” had occurred and “8-10” police vehicles were at the scene.

1pm Update: The road is now clear
