Closed to through traffic

Part of a road has collapsed in Sidcup.

A water leak is thought to have caused the damage to Warwick Road, which is closed to through traffic, although it is open to those who live there.

Thames Water are on site trying to fix the problem, although they were hampered earlier by the presence of a recycling lorry in the affected part of the road, which has now been moved.

No bus routes have been affected but drivers are advised to avoid the area.
