TRAFFIC is queuing back almost as far as the Dartford Crossing following a lorry fire on the M25 near Orpington.

Two lanes are closed leaving traffic queueing clockwise and long delays over 90 minutes while recovery work continues before junction four for the A21/A224.

The lanes were closed after a lorry caught fire. The fire has been put out but lanes one and two remain shut while the 40 tonne load is removed.
