A passer-by is just glad there aren't any injuries

Kash Bhatti, 69, was walking to the library from his home in Durham Avenue when he saw the car on its roof.

The father-of-three said: “It had already happened when I got there and there was no traffic. I walked from my house and saw there is something wrong then I saw the buses standing there and I saw the car turned upside down.

“The main thing is nobody got injured and there is still traffic all in the area.”

Fire brigade arrived in two minutes

Firefighters were called at 5.04pm and were there by 5.06pm. They left at 5.29pm, however, and confirmed nobody was trapped so there was no need for them to cut the car.

Car overturned

'Debris' on the road

Wile local police say they are on the scene with the fire brigade, Scotland Yard’s press team says it’s not something the police are handling - and it looks like it’s a case of debris on the road.

There was a traffic collision and the road is still closed - that much we know. But there aren’t any more details on the collision at this point.

Where in Heston Road?

So the collision was on Heston Road, near Church Road, which is the other major road to the west on this map.
