Drunken 'numpty' shuts Blackwall Tunnel
A DRUNKEN 'numpty' taking a walk through the Blackwall Tunnel led to a northbound closure last night (Aug 15).
Transport for London tweeted on their traffic news account: "The Blackwall Tunnel is closed n/b due to a drunk individual (numpty) walking through the tunnel. Expect delays."
This was followed later by: "He’s gone, the tunnels open again, Q’s will take some time to clear in the area."
Someone attempting to walk through the tunnel is not an unknown phenomenon.
Last summer the crossing was closed for 15 minutes after a wayward walker was spotted inside, using it as a shortcut across the river.
