Lorry jack-knifed on M2 now cleared

By Alan Smith

Delays have now cleared on both the M2 and the A249 this morning after a lorry jack-knifed on the motorway.

The incident happened on the London-bound carriageway just after J5 A249 (the Sittingbourne/Stockbury Roundabout).

The lorry was on the hard shoulder, but police had closed the next lane to help with the lorry's recovery, leaving only one lane open.

Police have closed one lane (1480783)

However the vehicle has now been recovered and the traffic, which had backed up along the A249 as far as the A2 Keycol roundabout, is now easing.

The incident happened at 6.20am. There are no reports of injuries.
