A spokesman for Merton Council said: “The traffic lights are under TfL, the council has no control over them, but we have passed the message on.”

At 1.50pm a spokesman from TfL said: "There was a problem but we sent engineers down and they’ve fixed it.

"Lights are back on – but we will keep an eye on them just in case."

There are no reports of anyone being injured.
