Cars were nose to tail for several miles, with one person forced to get off a bus and walk to work nearby due to the extremely slow traffic.

One driver said it took her one hour 40 minutes to get to Strood from Maidstone.

All lanes are now open, after all traffic was held back for about 30 minutes just before 7.20am to clear the crash.
