Two people were trapped in a car after a crash on Sunday morning and had to be set free by firemen cutting the roof off the vehicle.
The fire brigade were called to Camberwell Road just after 10am after two cars were involved in a collision, and found a man and a woman trapped in one of the damaged vehicles.
The police cordoned off the road, causing traffic tailbacks through Camberwell and up to Walworth, while the fire brigade released the pair. They were both taken to a south London hospital by the London Ambulance Service, with injuries not thought to be life-threatening.
Road closures remained in place for most of the day while the police investigated the circumstances of the collision. No arrests have been made and enquiries continue.
