Wood Lane has been closed in both directions at the junction of South Africa Road and southbound at DuCane Road because of an “emergency services incident”. ABC foreign affairs reporter Julia Macfarlane wrote on Twitter: “Gigantic police cordon along most of Wood Lane from Wormwood Scrubs down to white city and near Shepherd’s Bush. Westway also at a standstill.”

The Jambuster traffic service wrote on its website: “[A219] Wood Lane (Both Directions) at the junction of South Africa Road and southbound at DuCane Road.

“Road closed due to an emergency services incident.

“Traffic is slow southbound on approach.

“Traffic is also being diverted off the A40 eastbound, around the Northern Roundabout and back on the A40, which has caused long tailbacks to the Paddington Slip.

“Diverting traffic on the West Cross Route northbound is also slow, tailing back towards Holland Park Roundabout.

“Expect delays.”
