Traffic light stuck on red

Reported via mobile in the Stuck on red category anonymously at 21:17, Thursday 16 June 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3602750.

Driving down Belmont road as it approaches the crossroads to west green road N15, I saw many cars either doing 3 point turns or going through red lights. I waited patiently for quite a few minutes in a queue of traffic and the lights stayed on red. The lights still didn’t change and I ended up being the 1st car in the queue and so I thought about doing a 3 point turn as I knew the lights never take anywhere near this long but as I ended up being the first car in the queue as everyone else went through the red light I knew it wasn’t safe to do a 3 point turn there as someone could be coming round the corner and could hit into my car. I very slowly crept forward and sat on the pedestrian crossing. Seconds later the lights changed to green. This happened on the 16th June 2022 at around 8:40pm. The car I was driving is a black Vauxhall corsa with registration DY21 ZMX and I think I ended up waiting there for around 4-5 mins. Thank you
