Collision between boat and lorry causes long delays on M25

Commuters may be used to getting stuck in queues on the M25 but drivers in Surrey were delayed for a more unusual reason on Thursday - a speedboat.

The Highways Agency reported a collision involving a lorry and the speedboat around 4am near Junction 8 with 30-minute tailbacks developing as the morning rush hour began.

The outside lane of the clockwise section was closed along with the sliproad at the junction and although the lane has been reopened the sliproad is still closed with long delays still being reported.
