Major motorway closed as crash involving lorry and car causes two-mile queue

A miles-long section of the M25 is expected to be shut for hours after a crash involving a lorry and a car caused a two-mile queue. The M25 clockwise was closed from Junction 10 at the A3 Wisley Interchange to Junction 11 at the A320 St Peters Way after the collision occurred at about 3.30am on Tuesday. It was unclear whether anyone was injured.

Police were on scene. Traffic information service Inrix said traffic was queuing for two miles from the scene of the crash, Surrey Live reports. There is likely to be major disruption during the morning commute, with the lanes expected to be closed until 9.15am.

National Highways, formerly Highways England, wrote on its website that all four lanes of the M25 clockwise had been closed following the accident. Have you been affected by this story? Email
