It is understood that the reported police investigation stems from something which took place at Church Hill.

However the Metropolitan Police have not shared any more information about what has happened at this time. The force has been approached for information.

Meanwhile the bus 212 is being diverted from the area due to the closures.

Expect more updates tomorrow.
