Motorists are warned of major delays after an accident earlier today resulted in the closure of part of the North Circular.

Congestion is now stretching back on the A406 to M1 J1 (Staples Corner).

Bus route 232 is on diversion via East Finchley and Muswell Hill along the A1 Falloden Way, Bishops Avenue, A504 Fortis Green and Colney Hatch Lane.
