Motorists are warned to expect delays of several hours

Motorists are facing travel chaos in the run-up to rush hour following two serious crashes on the M25.

Traffic is currently being held on the anti-clockwise carriageway of the motorway at junction 1B, on the approach to the Dartford Crossing, with queues stretching back as far as junction 3 for Swanley.

Highways chiefs expect the road to remain shut throughout rush hour, with drivers being diverted towards the junction 2 exit.

Barely an hour later, another smash on the anti-clockwise carriageway at junction 4 for Orpington has shut that stretch of the motorway.

Emergency services are at the scene and all traffic is being diverted off the exit slip road.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
