Police were called at 11:25hrs after reports of a man hit in a collision with a van at Queens Road in Erith.

Police state: “Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and the man – no further details – was taken to hospital for treatment to his injuries; his condition is not life threatening.”

“The van did not stop at the scene.”

“A man, believed aged in his 30s, was subsequently arrested on suspicion of GBH with intent and remains in custody at a south London police station.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 or via @MetCC and quote CAD2784/19Jan,” the Met said.

Traffic backed up in all directions.

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

    They’ve just closed the road again from the fish roundabout towards the lights at McDonald’s. It looks like it is for roadworks.
