The road - which is right next to East Dulwich train station and serves several bus routes - was closed by police, but reopened after 4pm.

The closure caused big diversions as many of the residential streets nearby are low-traffic neighbourhoods or one-way routes.

Elsie Road, Southwark, one of the low-traffic neighbourhoods, was also blocked off by police tape.

East Dulwich local Richard Ayoade - star of the IT crowd - was one of those watching on.
