Long delays after pile-up on M20 at Leybourne

Police accident

A five-vehicle crash has been causing traffic chaos on the M20 this morning.

The pile-up blocked the coastbound carriageway at junction four at Leybourne at about 7.30am.

All traffic was stopped while emergency services deal with the crash in the outside lane.

Congestion was stretching back to the M26 junction while the vehicles involved were moved to the hard shoulder.

All lanes were re-opened at about 8.15am, but traffic delays continued.

Meanwhile, one lane of the opposite carriageway was closed when two lorries crashed just moments later.

The smash, also near junction four, caused delays snaking back to junction seven at Detling Hill.
