Recovery efforts are currently underway on the M20, after a lorry came off the road this morning.

One lane of the motorway is currently closed on the coastbound carriageway, between junctions and 8 and 9.

Police and the fire service received the initial call to the incident at around 10am this morning, with the Highways Agency (HA) attending the scene shortly after.

The vehicle's driver escaped without injury, but the recovery has been proving difficult.

A spokesman for the HA said that it is hoped the lane closure will not affect rush hour traffic.
