By Lynn Cox

Traffic stretched back five miles on the M2 after a car ended up on its roof following a collision with another vehicle.

The crash happened on the coastbound carriageway between Junction 5 for Sittingbourne and Junction 6 for Faversham.

It is understood the car which overturned was in collision with a mini, which span on the carriageway before coming a halt.

All lanes have been reopened and traffic has cleared.

It was the second crash on the coastbound carriageway this afternoon.

Earlier a biker suffered a leg injury when his machine was in collision with a car on the same stretch of road.
