One lane of the M26 eastbound has re-opened following a serious crash on the Kent motorway earlier today.
However, the westbound carriageway between the M20 and M25 remain closed as police continue to work on the scene of the crash.
The Highways Agency and its contractors are working with partners including the police, and other emergency services, to fully reopen the road as soon as it is safe to do so.
The carriageway is expected to remain closed for several hours to come.
Delays are approximately 20 minutes eastbound and 60 minutes westbound and motorists are advised to avoid the area.
