Delays after car fire on M25 Junction 5 for Sevenoaks

By Claire McWethy

Drivers were warned of delays after a car burst into flames on a busy motorway.

Two lanes of the M25 were blocked and traffic reported to be slow on the M25 clockwise between junction 5 for the M26 and Sevenoaks, and junction 6 for Godstone.

The blaze, which happened on the hard shoulder, was quickly put out by fire crews.

All lanes had reopened by 3.30pm but delays remained.
