Police spokesman Steve Knight said: "Kent Police was called at 12.24pm following a serious collision involving a car and a lorry on London Road, Greenhithe, near the junction with Sanderling Way.

"Officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit are in attendance and a road closure is currently in place.

"Motorists are advised to expect delays and find alternative routes if possible."

But at around 5pm the carriageway reopened and traffic is now returning to normal. Police said there were not in a position to give an update regarding injuries sustained to those involved.

Martin Corrigan, 54, who lives on London Road, near to the incident, said he had feared a serious accident would happen on the stretch of road.

"I warned the councillors and highways that something serious is going to happen. I live here and cars are always going past my house at 60-70mph.

"It's a 30mph zone but all the speed signs are hidden behind overgrown bushes.

"I think it's so bad- I saw this coming; I knew something would happen."
