Traffic is piling up on the A40 eastbound near the Polish War Memorial after a vehicle fire.

An earlier incident also caused traffic to build on the A40 when a car and motorbike collided at a petrol pump in Perivale.

London Fire Brigade is on the scene at the war memorial and has closed one of the two lanes, slowing down rush hour traffic.

The vehicle is on the A40 at West End Road, but traffic is tailing back for several miles.
