The crash happened between junction 5 for the M26 and 4 for Orpington at around 6.15am.

A 42-year-old man from Gravesend was arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving and has since been released pending further inquiries.

The road was closed for several hours, causing gridlock on the motorway.

All lanes had reopened by 2pm, but drivers are still facing lengthy queues.
