There is very heavy queuing traffic on Rochester Way Relief near the Blackwall Tunnel this afternoon following a crash.

Despite the cars involved being moved onto the hard shoulder there are severe delays all the way back to the Blackwall Tunnel.

The congestion is being made worse due to the popularity of the new Ikea store in North Greenwich, which is bringing a lot of extra traffic into the area.

One woman on Facebook said she had been on a bus in standstill traffic for over 30 minutes, due to the incident.

Police have been contacted for comment and we will update you when we have more information.
