The M20 in Kent has re-opened this evening - more than 24 hours after a lorry hit and demolished a footbridge over the motorway between junctions three and four near Maidstone.
The coast-bound carriageway was the first to be brought into use, although one lane is still coned off underneath the remains of the bridge.
An hour later traffic was escorted along the opposite carriageway past the crash scene. Highways England had worked throughout the night to clear tons of debris from the carriageway. The collision meant lengthy delays for thousands of motorists over the bank holiday weekend.
The beloved British high street chain will disappear from Britain's towns on Sunday as the last stores closed down.
M20 closed in Kent in both directions between J1 & J4 after a digger being transported by a lorry hit a footbridge causing it to collapse.
