There is severe congestion near the Dartford Crossing this morning due to an earlier breakdown.

Lanes were closed because of a broken down vehicle at Junction 1A for Crossways Boulevard and Swanscombe.

Congestion is stretching back across the river to Junction 30 for Lakeside.

All lanes have reopened after lane one was closed just before the slip road.

There are delays of at least ten minutes.

Traffic remains slow across the bridge.
