A sinkhole has caused mayhem for commuters heading home in Kensington.

Kensington Church Street has closed both ways with queueing traffic due to a sinkhole - with queues stretching back from Kensington High Street to Bedford Gardens.

The road has been closed for emergency repairs to the road surface after a sinkhole opened up around 7.30am this morning.

In other areas, there was a pile-up on Park Road Northbound at Swakeleys Roundabout.

The crash occurred off the roundabout - Two cars remain at the scene.

A40 Western Avenue Eastbound lane blocked on the exit slip road, queueing traffic due to recovery work and a broken-down lorry at Hanger Lane.

Queueing traffic due to earlier crash between three vans involved on the Eastern Avenue Northbound at Kingfisher Avenue.

There are the usual delays on the North Circular Road Westbound around the Clockhouse Interchange.


Largely dry at first but then becoming increasingly cloudy, with outbreaks of rain spreading east.

It will be increasingly windy during the night, particularly along coastal areas.

The minimum temperature is expected to be around 5C.


Good service on all lines.
