Sevenoaks: Overturned vehicle on M26 blocks carriageway

By Natalie Tipping

Two crashes on the same stretch of motorway caused long delays this afternoon.

The west-bound carriageway of the M26 was closed between junction 2a and junction 1 for the M25 and the A21 at around 1pm after a car flipped. 

Emergency services including police, paramedics and firefighters were called.
