Emergency crews were called at about 6.20pm after a black Dacia Duster Ambiance and white BMW M135i collided.

Police were joined by crews from South East Coast Ambulance Service and Kent Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance, as well as Kent Fire and Rescue Service.

The driver of the Dacia, a woman in her 50s from Ashford, and two male passengers in the BMW – one in his 20s from Lydd and another in his 40s from Hull – were all pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the BMW, a man in his 30s, was airlifted to a London hospital with serious injuries.

The road was closed for more than 12 hours while investigations took place, with the route only reopening at about 6.30am yesterday morning.
