An accident has led to the busy stretch of the A316 in Hanworth being blocked.

One has been closed on the A316 Country Way following the lunchtime accident, today (8).

The incident has been reported to take place on Country Way westbound between Sunbury Way and Sunbury on the M3 J1 and is affecting Sunbury Way, Snakey Lane and Nallhead Road.

Three lanes were initially reported to be blocked.

Traffic is moving slowly in the area because of the accident, recovery work and emergency repairs.

We have contacted the police and London Ambulance Service.

In May, five people were taken to hospital following a major car crash on Uxbridge Road, Hanworth.

More as we get it.
