Their bike crashed on the London-bound carriageway, near the slip road for Bean, at about 12.30pm.

The rider, a 63-year-old man, was flown to King's College Hospital, while his passenger, a 60-year-old woman, was taken to St George's Hospital.

The road was closed for more than three hours until about 4pm while officers from the serious collision investigation unit carried out an investigation.

Sgt Chris Wade, of Kent Police's serious collision investigation unit, said: "We are investigating a single vehicle collision involving a motorcycle.

"I would ask anyone who witnessed the incident, but were unable to stop at the scene to speak to police, to contact us. I would also encourage anyone who might have seen this vehicle prior to the collision to call police."

Witnesses or anyone with information is asked to phone Sgt Wade at Kent Police by phoning 01622 798538.
