A busy road has been reopened after a broken down van caused long delays this morning.

All lanes of the A406 North Circular Road in the eastbound direction were closed between Chingford Road and Woodford New Road in Walthamstow this morning after the break down.

The van has since been taken to safety and all lanes reopened at about 9.50am.

Vans are often poorly maintained and with the lack of police, these vehicles often go amiss.

Maybe, but who checks the tyres? The tyres are the main cause of the accident?

Accident. What accident?! The van broke down, a mechanical fault. Nothing to do with tyres and nothing to do with the police!!!

Stop being a busybody and go out and do something less boring instead!!

If people do not maintain their cars they will break down and possibly cause an accident.
