A serious road traffic incident has sadly left two people dead this afternoon.
A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said:
“We were called at 1:20pm today (20 February) to reports of a road traffic collision on Ardleigh Green Road at the junction of the A127, Romford.
“We dispatched five ambulance crews, an incident response officer, an advanced paramedic, three medics in cars to the scene. We also dispatched London’s Air Ambulance trauma team.
“Sadly, despite efforts of medics, two people died at the scene.
“We treated a further seven people at the scene and took them all to the hospital.”
Our thoughts are with their families and friends.
