Shooters Hill was closed last night after a crash between a van and a car.

Officers were called to Shooters Hill on the junction of Academy Road at 7.33pm last night.

London Fire Brigade and London Ambulance services were called but there were no reports of any injuries.

A Met Police spokesman said: “There was a lot of mess from the cars but luckily there were no serious injuries.”

The road was closed both ways between Academy Road and Baker Road and drivers were advised to seek an alternative route.

From photos taken by the public the car is facing the wrong way and collided head-on with a work van.
