The A406 North Circular Road is closed in both directions after a burst water main flooded both sides of the carriageway. The current overflow of water overwhelmed motorists and forced them to a standstill in the carriageway. The London Fire Brigade are currently at the scene freeing motorists who were trapped in their cars at the Brent Cross Interchange.
Video footage of the aftermath of the burst main has begun surfacing online.
Many videos feature cars stranded in the large body of water with one showing a truck attempting to drive through the flooded road.
The closure of this area has resulted in heavy delays and traffic jams in both directions.
Some motorists have taken to Twitter to voice their frustration at the current situation.

An annoyed social media user wrote: “Burst water main on A406 again.
“Tried to search for it online and looks like this isn’t the first time this has happened.
“Last time in 2018? Who is doing such an awful job at fixing this mess.”
“Ridiculous, take some damn responsibility, get the job done properly.”
Another added: “Only in the northwest side of A406 does tomfoolery like flooding happen.”
