Motorists relieved as 1 lane opens on M2 after sinkhole

One lane has now been opened on the M2 after a 15ft sinkhole appeared in the central reservation.

The motorway had been closed since Tuesday but the hard shoulder was opened this morning at 6am for motorists to use.

Pea-shingle is being used to fill the sinkhole, which appeared between Sittingbourne and Faversham.

The two main lanes are still shut and delays are to be expected.
