Part of a busy dual carriageway had to be shut this afternoon after a crash between a car and a taxi.

Police were called to the crash in Newham Way (A13) just after 3.15pm today (July 22).

The incident took place on the eastbound carriageway of the road, near to the Canning Town flyover.

 It forced the closure of one lane of the dual carriageway for some of the afternoon.

The London Ambulance Service attended the scene after one person suffered minor injuries.

Police confirmed that no arrests have been made and that all roads are now clear.
