Emergency teams were at the scene of the smash during the busy morning rush hour

Motorists faced delays on the M20 this morning after a crash closed one of the lanes.

There were significant hold-ups on the London-bound carriageway between junction five for Aylesford and the A20 Coldharbour Lane and junction four for Leybourne and the A228.

The crash forced the outside lane of the carriageway to be blocked.

Emergency services got the road cleared just before 9am but there were still delays of some 30 minutes as traffic caught up in the delays was cleared.
