A motorcyclist has died following a crash with a lorry on a motorway.
Police were called to the coast-bound carriageway of the M20 at around 6am after a lorry and motorcycle collided.
The crash was close to junction 2 and the motorcyclist, a 49-year-old man who lived near Folkestone, died at the scene.
Police, the fire service and ambulance crews all attended and part of the coast-bound carriageway was closed for almost eight hours. It reopened just before 2pm.
Officers are now appealing for anyone who has not yet spoken to them to come forward.
Sergeant Hannah Brown said: "We would also like to speak to anyone who may have seen a black motorcycle or a lorry carrying a blue trailer in the moments leading up to it.
"If you have any information which may assist our enquiries please don’t hesitate to get in touch."
Call the Serious Collision Investigation Unit appeal line on 01622 798538, quoting reference AH/DM/220/17.
A second incident involving two further vehicles happened at the same spot shortly after the crash involving the motorcyclist and the lorry.
This involved two vehicles and led to three people being taken to hospital. None of the injuries were life threatening.
