M25 Accident

M25 traffic

This is the M25 at about 7pm this evening, showing congestion near Junction 8 (Reigate) on the anti-clockwise carriageway.  According to traffic reports, there was an accident earlier today when a lorry carrying bleach exploded. This caused this carriageway to be completely closed for several hours. According to the news report

Neil Owen, from Surrey Fire and Rescue, told BBC News: “Looking at the lorry, it’s actually sort of totally written-off.

By 7pm, as you can see, traffic was flowing again but was still heavy. Earlier the accident had also caused congestion on the clockwise carriageway (probably due to rubber-knecking), but after warnings were broadcast on the radio to stay away from this route it became unnaturally quiet for a Friday evening.

Finkangel reports on another accident on the A23, and provides a later update.
