Onlooker Duncan Hamilton heard it happen from his flat. He told the Gazette: “I live next to the bridge and heard this loud scraping noise from inside my apartment.

“It was probably only stuck for around one-and-a-half hours but there was temporary traffic lights for a separate roadway repair so it was traffic carnage.”

Buses were diverted and the London Overground line was suspended while emergency services dealt with the situation.
