M20 London bound closed, very slow traffic due to recovery work and earlier accident, a lorry down the embankment involved between J3 M26 and M25 / A20 (Swanley Interchange), congestion on M20 to J4 A228 (Leybourne / Snodland).
The main problem is for traffic heading from Kent to Essex as there is no direct access to anticlockwise M25 from the M26. Police say the road will be closed until at least lunchtime.
Diversion - for traffic wanting to use the anticlockwise M25- travel to J6 at Godstone and turn around.
