Three people have been injured on the M25 after a lorry crashed through the central reservation and hit a car on the opposite carriageway.

Police, fire and ambulance teams were called to the scene between junctions seven with the M23 and eight with the A217, just after 16:00 BST.

The Highways Agency said that part of the motorway would be closed until 09:00 on Saturday at the earliest.

Queues of up to 28 miles built up after the crash.

Stationary traffic reached junction 10 and Clacket Lane, between junctions five and six on the Kent and Surrey border.

'Severe disruption'

The Highways Agency said the clockwise traffic stretched back for six miles and the anti-clockwise queue back to Wisley ran for 28 miles.
