A woman in her twenties was taken to hospital after a car overturned in Beckton last night.

Paramedics and the fire brigade were called to the London-bound slip road onto the A13 (Newham Way) at about 10pm last night.

A spokeswoman for the London Ambulance Service said an ambulance crew and members of The Hazardous Area Response Team reached the scene in under seven minutes and took the woman to a nearby major trauma centre.

The accident may have affected traffic eastbound (Alfreds Way) and westbound (Newham Way) in both directions on the A13 as a result.
