A second day of diversions will be in place on the M20 this morning due to problems at the Channel Tunnel.
Non-freight traffic travelling in the direction of Folkestone and Dover will be diverted onto the A20 from Junction 8 (Hollingbourne) and rejoin the motorway at Junction 9 (Ashford West).
This allows backed-up freight traffic to park on the coast-bound carriageway.
Kent Police say drivers should leave more time or find alternative routes as 'Operation Stack' continues.
What is Operation Stack?
Operation Stack is where parts of the M20 are used to queue lorries travelling towards the continent, to avoid causing gridlock across Kent's road network.
It is introduced as an emergency measure.
The attack happened between Bromley South and Faversham. Police are trying to track down a passenger seen on CCTVRead the full story ›
The M25 has been shut for most of the day after a lorry crashed into a van that had broken down. The white van was ripped apart after the heavy goods vehicle collided with it on the anti-clockwise carriageway between junctions five and six in Surrey.
Kent Police said the driver of the van had left the vehicle to call for help when the accident happened, so luckily both drivers were unhurt. The HGV also collided with the central reservation, spilling oi and concrete rubble on to the road.
A police spokeswoman said the accident happened at around 9.50am near Clacket Lane, causing the M25 to be closed completely in the anti-clockwise direction, while two lanes were closed on the clockwise carriageway.
There were delays of more than an hour with traffic queuing back to the M26. Two lanes of the M25 remain closed in both directions.
A new report released today reveals that child hunger and poverty in London are dramatically affecting children's ability to learn.
More than 80 percent of teachers in London say that children are eating the wrong foods in the morning, and most say they can tell just by watching their behaviour at school.

It also found:
- Over a quarter of London teachers do not believe parents can identify what a nutritious breakfast is
- Nearly 60% of children also do not know what a nutritious breakfast is
- 23% of parents living in the city say that food is getting so expensive they have had to cut down on breakfasts

A CCTV image has been released of missing man Patrick Lamb. This is the last known sighting of Mr Lamb before he went missing in Maidstone. The 28-year old is seen in the far right of the image walking down Maidstone High Street.
The family and friends of a missing Kent man have spent the day giving out leaflets to the public, as they try to find out what happened to him. Twenty eight year old Patrick Lamb disappeared a week ago after he left a bar in Maidstone. His bank account hasn't been touched. Yesterday police divers searched the river Medway but found nothing. Andrea Thomas has the latest. She spoke to Patrick's sister Zoe, his girlfriend Natasha Morgan and Chief Inspector Susie Harper from Kent Police.
Police searching for 28 year old Patrick Lamb who disappeared in Maidstone a week ago have sent divers in to search part of the River Medway.
It comes as friends of Patrick launch a huge awareness campaign to help track him down.
He was last seen at Bar Chocolate on Friday night LAST week.
Police have today been using sonar to search part of the river, and this afternoon a tent was erected on the river bank. But an officer told ITV Meridian tonight that there was still no sign of the missing man.
Friends of Mr Lamb, who grew up in Whitstable and went to Canterbury High School, say it is extremely out of character for him not to have made contact and have set up a Facebook appeal for information.
