A228 closed near Snodland due to flooding

Drivers are facing yet more travel problems after a key route was partially shut due to flooding.

The A228 was closed heading southbound near Snodland between Manley Boulevard to Malling Road.

It has caused congestion stretching back four miles past the Halling turnoff - but all lanes have been reopened.

It comes as motorists already face travel chaos caused by the closure of the M25 due to sinkholes caused by yesterday's heavy rain.

The section between junctions 4 and 5 has reopened with one lane shut in both directions but a police incident has caused further closures on the motorway.

A picture shows a man on a bridge over the carriageway between junctions 3 and 4.

A police spokesman said: "The M25 near Swanley is closed in both directions between junctions 3 and 4 while emergency services are dealing with an incident.

"There is considerable congestion in the area and drivers may wish to consider alternative routes."
