Lorry jack-knifed on M2 now cleared

Delays have now cleared on both the M2 and the A249 this morning after a lorry jack-knifed on the motorway.

The incident happened on the London-bound carriageway just after J5 A249 (the Sittingbourne/Stockbury Roundabout).

The lorry was on the hard shoulder, but police had closed the next lane to help with the lorry's recovery, leaving only one lane open.
