Two car accidents within an hour of each other brought congestion and tailbacks to the A406 this afternoon.
The eastbound carriageway of the North Circular Road at Henlys Corner was almost fully blocked due to a collision at around 1.30pm.
Motorists were using the grass verge to pass the scene with long tailbacks up to the Brent Cross Flyover after a large vehicle couldn’t get past.
An hour later, a second crash occurred on the westbound off-slip to Staples Corner Roundabout.
The three lanes of the main A406 were unaffected.
Motorists on the road were further impacted 40 minutes later when a car broke down at Stonebridge Park towards Neasden, but were free to move soon after.
Police attended the first crash which they said was “damage only” with no injuries reported.
