A 130 vehicle pile-up on the A249 crossing in Kent today is the biggest fog accident that Britain has ever had, a motoring expert has said.
Neil Greig, policy and research director at the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM), said: "It is amazing that the same time it is also not the biggest in terms of people killed."
"What seems to have happened today is that people were very lucky that the speeds were lower and there were not many HGVs in the crash", Mr Grieg said.
"There will have been good driving among all this but there will also have been some bad driving...The key thing will be to find out what caused the traffic to stop".
