City gridlock after London Road three-car crash

TRAFFIC is currently gridlocked on Worcester city centre, thanks to an accident in London Road and roadworks in the Tything and Severn Terrace.

The three-car accident happened about an hour ago, and although it is not thought to have involved serious injuries, it has brought one of the main routes out of the city to a near-total standstill during evening rush-hour.

A police source said that the accident combined with the scheduled roadworks had caused gridlock on some of the city's busiest roads.

He said police officers were directing traffic around the site of the accident and hoped to have London Road opened as soon as possible.

'Thanks' to an accident? Surely 'because' of, or 'due to', an accident...

Honest to goodness, these reports are getting worse by the day. I'm just waiting for the first report to end with LOL or some similar brainless acronym.
