As a result of the fire oil has leaked from the car and KCC Highways attended to clean the spillage and re-open the road.

This was one of a number of incidents on roads around Maidstone today, including a five-car pile-up on the M20 which has closed the road most of the day.

Motorists were advised to approach with caution.
