Highways England says there have been no accidents.

The delays are purely down to the sheer volume of traffic approaching the crossing.

In a tweet at 8.30pm, the agency said data shows it was taking traffic 31 minutes longer than normal for this time on a Sunday evening to travel from Junction 3 at Swanley to the crossing.
