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 motorist has been sentenced 20 weeks in prison and banned from driving for four years after he was caught behind the wheel three-and-a-half times the alcohol limit the day after he was banned for drink driving.
37 year old Dean Callan was initially disqualified for 26 months after he was seen by police officers throwing an empty bottle of vodka out of his car window while driving on Boxing Day.
Callan was convicted of driving over the prescribed limit, and for motoring without a licence or insurance on January 13th.
The following day he was spotted by police driving again, and when they pulled him over they found he was three-and-a-half times the legal drink-drive limit.
Dean Callan has given absolutely no regard to his or anybody else's safety by getting behind the wheel while unfit."His actions are even more astonishing given he repeated the offence less than 24 hours after appearing in court."We remain committed to taking making the county's roads a safer place for everybody and will not tolerate such blatant contempt for the law."
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.
The report, by charity Magic Breakfast, is part of the 'Feed Their Future' campaign, which aims to raise awareness of the impact of child hunger on education.
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
- Up to 60% of parents let their children eat anything in the morning, just so they eat something
