It reports slow moving traffic between junction 5 at Swanley and the tunnel.

It warned there were additional delays because of an "incident" involving an HGV at junction 30 at Thurrock just after 7am.

There are reports that one of the Essex-bound tunnels has also been closed.

It is estimated the break-down is adding half-an-hour to journeys.
