I was just walking back from Dulwich and 2 police cars flew by, followed by an ambulance. As I got to the westbound turn where the Circular splits off at Lordship Lane it's blocked off by a police car: everything westbound is getting diverted onto Lordship Lane and as a result traffic already seems backed up into Forest Hill. If you're going that way, try to go around it if you can, or allow some extra time.

Thank you Clausy, I was just about to go to the bank on Lordship Lane. I'll give it a miss, now.

Fire Brigade say they had to cut two people out of cars and 6 went to hospital.

Sounds ghastly: https://twitter.com/LondonFire/status/50...4242659328

A lot of people are having a much worse day than the folks stuck in a traffic jam for a while.

Yup speaking to TfL they confirm the road will remain closed for accident investigation work.
Thoughts with the victims, and hope they are all going to be ok. Clearly life changing/ threatening injuries for someone though Sad

@TfLTrafficNews 3m
A205 Dulwich Common has fully reopened following an earlier collision. Traffic levels have returned to normal in the area.

I witnessed a pair of idiots overtake at high speed near that part of th SC recently, only just missing the bus I was on heading towards them.

IF this accident was was caused by idiotic driving then these people should be given heavy jail sentences.
