Drivers faced traffic chaos on their way to work this morning following an accident on the A316.

Long delays were reported on the road, which runs through the borough, after a collision between a motorcyclist and a car earlier today.

Part of the A316 near Hanworth was closed east-bound following the incident.

Ambulance crews and a helicopter were called to the scene of the incident, close to Apex Corner, shortly after 7.55am.

A London Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We were called to a traffic accident between a car and a motorcyclist.

“Staff treated a man at the scene and he was taken to Royal London Hospital with leg and pelvic injuries.”

The road reopened just before noon.
