Motorists face long delays on M25 following crash at Dartford Crossing
MOTORISTS travelling out of Kent using the Dartford Tunnels are facing rush-hour chaos following a crash involving a lorry.
Traffic is currently queuing for eight-miles on the M25 in Kent, close to junction 4 for Orpington.
Police were called to the accident, at the entrance to the west tunnel, at around 2pm this afternoon.
The accident involved a lorry and a black Volkswagen Passat.
One person suffered slight injuries following the crash.
Traffic was initially held at the toll booths before being diverted through the east tunnel.
Both tunnels re-opened at 3:30pm but delays still exist on the approach to the tunnels and on many surrounding routes.
