Does anyone know what caused the mad traffic jam at Elephant & Castle roundabout this morning?

Please tell me we're not going to have this every morning?

There was an earlier accident involving a car and an ambulance on ~Kennington Pk Rd, and I think the road was eventually closed off completely, thus causing virtual gridlock to the surrounding roads. Thank Ken for bus lanes is all I can say !

It was hard enough for the bus to actually get into the bus lane!!

I for one hope never to have to reply on an Ambulance during rush hour....

accident or no accident, the root cause was too many people driving cars.

yes, the collision happened at a very quiet time early in the morning, but admittedly, if there were less traffic on the roads at rush hour when the road had to be closed, the gridlock may not have formed.

Is the baby all right? I got pretty stuck in Vauxhall on my way to work, but was far more upset when I read the full story in the paper.
