A silver van had stopped on the Londonbound carriageway of the hard shoulder and the driver got out of his vehicle.

The man was then hit by a lorry between junction 10 and 9 at 1.28am today

A silver VW caddy van, driven by a 56 year-old man from the Essex area, had stopped on the hard shoulder of the M20 Londonbound carriageway at Ashford. For reasons yet to be established, the man appears to have entered the carriageway and was then in collision with an articulated goods vehicle. He was pronounced deceased at the scene.”
