Ex EastEnders star slams the Elephant and Castle roundabout

Former EastEnders and Silent Witness actress Madeline Duggan yesterday took to Twitter to slate the new Elephant and Castle roundabout design.

The Bermondsey-born soap star, who played Laura Branning between 2006 and 2010, called on the people behind the roundabout’s design to be “sacked”.

Tweeting to her nineteen-thousand followers, she said: “Elephant & Castle is the worst ‘round about’ I have ever seen.”

The 21-year-old then replied to a local Twitter user @RoundaboutNews, saying: “Anyone with a brain cell would of known it was a stupid idea. I hate it.”

The Elephant and Castle is undergoing a £24m redevelopment that started in December, where serious or non-serious accidents have been taking place on an almost weekly basis.

Last week the News reported the death of a 20-year-old motorcyclist who was involved in a collision on March 16 at the junction with Newington Causeway.

The tragic incident followed another fatal collision on February 5, when an 86-year-old woman was struck by a lorry at the junction with New Kent Road.
