Three lorries have been involved in a crash causing one of the Dartford Crossing tunnels to close.

Queues are stretching back almost five miles from the Dartford Crossing to junction 4 of the M25 for the A21 to Orpington.

This is because the East Bore tunnel, connecting Kent to Essex, has closed after the tri-vehicle crash which happened at around 1:28pm.

Traffic waiting time for motorists travelling in this direction is approximately 45 minutes and is expected to rise.

No injuries have been reported.
