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.
