Anyone know why the New Kent Road was closed last night around 10.30pm from Elephant railway bridge to Bricklayers Arms roundabout?

The street was all taped off, police cars at either end to stop traffic using the road and the only things in between were the front cabin of an HGV and two 'not in service' bendy buses.

I walked past and I must have been one of about 5 people along the whole street - it was eerily quiet.

Yes looked like a nasty accident involving pedestrian and lorry I think- was on No 1 bus that got diverted.
