The only place the traffic was moving was near the accident, it wasn't blocking any lanes. The problem was the Brighton Road Belmont which was completely blocked.

I hope not says...

There was also a collision between a car and a motorbike outside Sutton Hospital this morning. The traffic would have been ok if people didn't slow down to watch !
