There are miles of tailbacks across Greenwich and Charlton tonight.
Even by recent standards of high congestion, tonight’s traffic is bad. There are reports of people stuck in Charlton retail car parks unable to exit for hours.
Buses are also experiencing extremely long delays.
The A2 is backed up to a greater degree than normal towards Kent, with queues extending all the way to the tunnel from Falconwood.
There were delays earlier at Blackwall Tunnel then the Woolwich ferry shut due to a high tide.
