A man in his forties was taken to hospital yesterday after a road traffic collision in Morden.

Morden Road heading towards Wimbledon was partially blocked as emergency services dealt with the collision, which meant traffic was tailed back down as far as St Helier Avenue and the Middleton Road junction.

The London Ambulance Service was called at 7.22am on Tuesday, April 1, to reports of a collision.

An ambulance was sent to the scene where crews treated one man in his forties for arm and leg injuries.

He was taken to St George’s Hospital in Tooting at 8.35am.

There were no other casualties.
