Drivers stuck for hours on M20 after multi-vehicle crash

Drivers have reported being stuck for hours on the M20 in Kent following a multi-vehicle crash.

Emergency services were called to the westbound stretch between J9 for Ashford and J8 for Maidstone on Saturday, June 3.

The collision involved a lorry and a car underneath the Egerton Road bridge.

It is not yet clear whether anyone has been injured.

National Highways is warning drivers of delays.

It comes as roads remain busy as many motorists head to the coast as temperatures reach 20°C across much of the South East.

Major routes are also busier than usual due to strikes across 14 train operators.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) are walking out in a long-running dispute over pay.
