A woman has been rushed to hospital after a crash at the Swanley Interchange brought traffic to a stop on the M20.

The westbound link road off the Londonbound M20 onto the anti-clockwise M25 was after the crash at around 2.40pm.

A spokesperson from Kent Police said: “We were called at 2.41pm on Wednesday 22 November following a single vehicle collision on a slip road leading onto the M25 near Swanley.

“Officers are currently at the scene alongside the South East Coast Ambulance Service.

“A woman is reported to have suffered serious injuries and will be taken to a hospital in London for treatment.

“A road closure is in place and motorists are advised to use alternative routes if possible.”

South East Coast Ambulance Service sent two ambulances and a paramedic car to the scene, which were joined by an air ambulance.

The woman has been taken to King’s College Hospital by road with serious injuries.

Lane two of the link road has now reopened but police remain on scene with lane one closed.

Motorists are still able to access the anti-clockwise M25 via Swanley roundabout.
