Roads across Blackheath are closed tonight after a Mercedes hit the Blackheath tea hut near Greenwich Park. It’s reported a member of staff was trapped inside. Three people have been taken to hospital.
It looks as though a fair bit of damage has been caused. Buses are diverted and numerous emergency services are on scene:
The 53 is also diverted. Police have blocked roads in the area.
Diverted traffic is slow moving through Greenwich.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.
