Cardboard boxes on the A12 are causing delays in and around the Hackney Wick area.

The AA reported that there had been a crash - with "a bus involved" - before the Eastway Tunnel earlier this morning (May 25).

However, a Met spokesperson clarified: "It was cardboard boxes in the road. No collision."

At the time of writing, there is congestion to just after the Bow Underpass and between Old Ford and  Wick Road.
