Brixton commuters faced their third morning of travel hell this morning, when a broken down car on Brixton Road caused massive delays.
Transport for London (TfL) tweeted about delays of up to half an hour after the vehicle stopped under the railway bridge in the centre of town. Traffic soon backed up Brixton Hill and left people stranded in their cars and buses.

Traffic was still very heavy at 10.15am, with TfL now blaming the problem on faulty light signals in the same area.
Comedian Daniel Ruiz Tizon took to Twitter to say: “That was a painful journey. Crash at #Brixton. Got off. Walked 4 stops, then caught the same bus again.”
