M2 crash closes London-bound carriageway near junction 5 for the A249 Stockbury Roundabout and Sittingbourne

Commuters face long delays this morning after a five-vehicle crash on the M2.

Queues built up on the London-bound stretch of the motorway following the pile up just past the junction 5 turn off for the A249 (Stockbury Roundabout and Sittingbourne).

The accident happened just after 7am and the road is now clear, although delays are still being reported.

Kent Police spokesman James Walker said: "We were called to a five vehicle collision on the M2 London-bound, between junctions 5 and 4, at 7.05am.

"No serious injuries have been reported and the involved vehicles have been moved to the hard shoulder."

But a driver caught up in the traffic said: "It started moving for about a mile but began queuing again and there is now virtually solid traffic between Faversham and Sittingbourne.

"It has taken me more than 40 minutes to get from Faversham and I am still half a mile from the A249 junction."
