Traffic at the Dartford Crossing was heavy heading anticlockwise back to junction three on Tuesday afternoon.

The tunnel heading toward Essex was closed for urgent maintenance works.

A Highways England spokesperson confirmed the tunnel was closed due to a power surge.

Workers had to reset some of the tunnel’s safety systems before motorists could travel through the tunnel.

All lanes have since reopened.
