Businesses in Kingston town centre affected by "horrendous traffic"

The part closure of Cambridge Road is causing big problems for Kingston's town centre shops.

A crane removal is taking place on the Cambridge Estate, meaning traffic delays into the town centre of over an hour in some places.

Buses and ambulances are also caught up in the traffic.

A number of listeners have told us the traffic is so horrendous, they have turned around and gone elsewhere.

Shop owners are also questioning why the road had to be closed during the weekend, with one who wished not to be named, telling us "it should have been done overnight, not on a busy Saturday when people use the shops."

Other shop owners in the town centre have told us it's "unusually quiet for a Saturday," and as of 12pm, there were none of the normal queues for any of the main car parks.

One listener who was trying to get to Kingston Hospital says residents "received no warning about the closure."

Kingston Hospital has asked patients to leave plenty of extra time to get there today.

Kingston Council has put a notice on its website under the roadworks section, in the "High Impact" column.

Two men from Walton, who have been making nuisance 999 calls for years, have finally been cut off.

The pair have been handed Criminal Behaviour Orders.

Surrey Police says in one instance, a man called the service 20 times in one day.

He’d make up injuries, which meant an ambulance or officers had to be dispatched.

Head of Contact at Surrey Police, Sarah Durston said: “On the occasions where these men did not have an emergency they may have prevented someone else who was in genuine danger from getting through to us. This presents a real risk to our ability to respond to genuine emergency calls.

The 999 number must only be used for situations where a crime is actually in progress or someone is in danger. Calling us on 101 does not change the police response you would get in a non-emergency situation and using the right number could literally save someone's life.”
