Detling Hill has completely reopened following diesel spill in the morning. 

A stretch of the A249 northbound, which runs from Maidstone to Sittingbourne, had been completely closed due to the spillage.

It was enforced between junction 7 of the M20 and Bimbury Lane in Detling but reopened fully at 11.30am.

Police were first called at 6.42am and a spokesman said the spill has happened close to Jade's Crossing.
