A bathtub has been removed from the A2 near Bluewater this morning.

The delays were caused on the westbound road between the B255, Bean Interchange For Bluewater, and M25 J2 (Darenth Interchange).

Kent Police were called at 8.55am to reports of the bathtub that had fallen from a vehicle and was sitting in lane two of the coastbound carriageway between the turn off for Dartford Heath and the M25.

A spokesman for Kent Police said: "Officers attended and put on a rolling road at the Black Prince turn off. The debris was removed and the owner was given words of advice by officers.

"The rolling road was removed by 9.10am."

I saw the bathtub it was middle lane hogging, I beeped my horn and flashed my lights but it didn't move over. I drive a Audi so I don't understand why it didn't move. On other matters is that the bathtub or is that just a stock picture of a bathtub in case somebody doesn't know what a bathtub looked like.

I like the look of this bathtub - very stylish! Happy to give it a home. I wonder if the words of advice given to the owner referred to the desirability of leaving a bath in the road???
