Crash delays at junction 1B M25, Dartford

By Aidan Barlow

Lanes have reopened on the approach to a busy motorway crossing after a crash involving a lorry.

The crash happened at junction 1B on the M25 southbound at Dartford, and reportedly involved a tipper truck and car being stuck in the third lane.

Police had closed three lanes on the motorway approaching the accident, but say the vehicles involved in the crash have now been recovered.

It happened at around 5.15pm and traffic queues were backed up to junction 29 of the M25 at Romford.

The road eventually cleared at around 7.30pm.

Meanwhile, Kent traffic heading into Essex was delayed as a broken down vehicle shut two lanes of the M25 from J31 (West Thurrock) to J1A (Swanscombe).

It led to queues stretching back four and a half miles with a travel time was up to 60 minutes.
