Road closures were in place eastbound as the moped rider, a man in his 30s, was taken to an east London hospital with chest and spinal injuries at about 9.30am.

His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening, said a Met Police spokeswoman.

“We sent a number of resources to the scene including an incident response officer, a motorcycle responder and an ambulance crew,” a spokesman for London Ambulance Service added. “We also dispatched London’s Air Ambulance by car.”

The highway remains slow to Wapping Lane, according to Transport for London.
