The M25 was closed last night after a coach was involved in a collison. South East Ambulance Service said 48 people were on board the coach when it crashed near Leatherhead, Surrey.
Three lanes were closed overnight between junctions 8 and 9 and one lane remains closed this morning as the closed as recovery work is still underway and drivers are being told to expect long delays.
The ambulance said five were taken to hospital after the crash and all over passengers were checked and discharged at the scene.
Traffic is stuck in a 13 mile queue on the M25 between Waltham Abbey and Enfield because of an accident between two lorries, a fuel spillage and recovery work.
Two lanes are closed anticlockwise between Junction 25 and 26 and cars are now stretching one mile beyond Junction 28.
Travel time is estimated at two hours.
