If you were travelling down Merton High Street earlier today then chances are you were caught in a bit of traffic.

Well that is because a trailer of a tractortipped over on the junction between the high street and Haydon's Road, forcing police to close some of the lanes.

The incident happened at about midday, and traffic was queueing both ways, slipping out towards Durnsford Road and Plough Lane at 3pm.

Police put in a makeshift contraflow so traffic could pass the incident, which has now been resolved.
