Mitcham town centre was shut down yesterday morning after a car struck a lamp post.
Police were called to London Road, at the junction with Lower Green West just before 7am on Easter Monday where a Silver Seat Ibiza had hit a lamppost, causing damage to both.
London Ambulance Service was called to assist the female driver, but no injuries were reported.
London Road was closed from about 7.30am to 11am while the council removed the lamp post, which was in a dangerous position.
No one was arrested.
