(MIRROR UK) – Thousands of traffic jams brought London's roads to a grinding halt just hours before England went into a second full lockdown.

In scenes similar to those in Paris last week, routes out of the city quickly snarled up, with drivers reporting delays of more than 90 minutes. Traffic on the North Circular alone stretched eight miles, while TomTom congestion data showed 1,200 miles of queues and at least 2,624 jams.
