Motorists driving like idiots - that's what some believe was the cause of a 100-vehicle pile-up on the new bridge that links the Isle of Sheppey with the mainland. More than 60 people were injured - eight of them seriously.
The incident happened in thick fog and lasted for 10 minutes as cars and lorries crashed into each other. Our correspondent Derek Johnson sent a report from the scene.
