A spokesman for Kent Fire and Rescue Service said when crews arrived at the scene they were met by an off duty doctor and off duty police officer who were already in attendance.

Fire crews used hydraulic cutting equipment to remove a door of the car in order to release the two casualties. Both people were brought out of the car on longboards and handed on to South East Coast Ambulance Service for further care.

A police spokesman said: "Police were called to Junction 5 of the M2 at 9.47pm following a report of a single-vehicle crash.
