The road was closed while the injured were dealt with, and recovery for the vehicles was arranged.

It is believed two people were taken to hospital – one person to Kings in London and the other to William Harvey Hospital.

Neither is thought to have life threatening injuries.

Two lanes of the M20 reopened at 6am but one lane of the coastbound M20 is expected to remain closed for several hours this morning while a lorry is recovered from a ditch.

Police are still at the scene.
