Police have closed the A217 Garratt Lane northbound from the junction with the A24 Tooting High Street, following the crash outside Tooting Broadway underground station.

There is also likely to be heavy congestion on the A24 running south towards Colliers Wood.

The crash took place at about 8am.

It comes after fire broke out at a construction site in Tooting earlier this morning, which shut Mitcham Lane in both directions.
