Thurrock: Four injured In M25 Crash
Four people have been injured - two seriously - after an accident which has forced part of the M25 to close this morning (December 19th).
Four vehicles collided at around 7am on the anticlockwise section between the Dartford tunnel and Junction 31.
Police say that section of the road is likely to stay closed for several hours while an investigation is carried out and the damaged vehicles are removed.
Traffic is being allowed intermittently through the West bore section of the tunnel only.
The East bore remains closed.
It's the second accident on the same stretch of road in less than 48 hours.
