The A13 is partially closed this morning following a serious collision between two lorries.

The London-bound section of the road has been reduced to one lane while emergency services attend the scene near the Beckton roundabout.

Traffic is slow-moving with queues back to Lodge Avenue, while there are also elays on the A406 southbound back to the Barking flyover.

Drivers have been warned to expect long delays.

Police, firefighters and the London Ambulance Service are all on scene, having been called at around 5.50am.

A Met Police spokeswoman confirmed that nobody was injured.
