The M25 was closed for several hours on Thursday night as emergency services responded to the smash

Police have confirmed a motorcyclist was killed in a horror crash with a lorry and a van near the Dartford Crossing on Thursday.

Chiefs say a blue Honda motorbike collided with a white lorry and a white van at around 2.50pm in a smash which closed a section of the M25 and the Essex-bound carriageway of the A282 for most of the afternoon and throughout the evening rush hour.

Officers and the South East Coast Ambulance Service attended the scene but the motorcyclist, a man aged in his 30s from the Chelmsford area, was pronounced dead at the scene.

His next of kin have been informed.

Officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit are investigating the incident and are appealing for any witnesses who may have seen the vehicles beforehand, to get in contact.

Witnesses can call the appeal line on 01622 798538 quoting DJ/133/17.

Alternatively they can email sciu.td@kent.pnn.police.uk.
