Another IKEA resident took to Twitter to share a picture of the room she and another person had been given for the night - and she later revealed they were in the store until 9.30pm when they were finally allowed back onto the road.

Among those stuck in the traffic was Dame Kelly Holmes who admitted she had to go to the toilet by the side of the road.

She tweeted: "Sorry but I had to go! That's one thing a runner does well and doesn't care about - squatting! (It was just a wee before you start with the emojis)

"Even the lovely traffic control guy give me some toilet roll and hand wipes!??"

Thankfully, no one is thought to be seriously hurt in the collision which occurred at around 2.35pm yesterday.
