Severe disruption is occurring with passengers unable to enter the station.

    And today I cycled past the DLR, past the ferry and probably past the accident, the Thames Path and a bike is a great option.

    Hahahaha! Great advertisement for the ‘balance to Canary Wharf’!
    Hahahaha! Woolwich: City of the Damned, Home of the Mongs!

      Not sure what you are on about@Paul SuperUnknown. Your comment makes no sense.

      The 161 bus I was on paused along Beresfored Road opposite the hotel to let a police car pass by. As we got to the roundabout I saw that the car – a Skoda estate – was crashed against the barriers just after the roundabout near the Waterfront. Both airbags deployed and an ambulance was already there.
