The Queen Elizabeth II bridge was closed as experts detonated a Second World War bomb this afternoon.
Emergency services and highways crews closed the Dartford Crossing just before 3pm, causing lengthy tailbacks.
The bridge was reopened after the explosion was carried out, and delays are said to be clearing.
