Drivers on the M25 are facing possible delays after a car caught fire on the eastbound carriageway just before the M23.
Police have released CCTV of a cyclist who caused travel chaos after a phone app directed him to Britain's busiest motorway in the rush hour.
The misguided rider ended up pedalling for some miles on the southern section of the M25 in Surrey.
With drivers, and others, taking to Twitter to give their views of the man, there were long hold-ups for morning traffic on the often-clogged motorway.
One police officer tweeted that the cyclist had been seen between junctions 12 and 13 of the motorway. He was eventually removed from the motorway and given a £50 fine.
