Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

THREE peo­ple have died in a crash on the M20. The ac­ci­dent hap­pened on the Lon­don-bound car­riage­way near junc­tion 7 at Maid­stone at about 3.15pm on Tues­day. The three who died were in a white van. It is not yet known if other ve­hi­cles were in­volved. Traf­fic was di­verted at junc­tion seven, the slip road for the A249 and the Lon­don-bound car­riage­way was closed. Mo­torists were asked to avoid the area and use al­ter­na­tive routes. Kent Po­lice worked with the High­ways Agency to min­imise traf­fic dis­rup­tion where it was pos­si­ble. A spokesman said: “Po­lice pri­or­i­ties are to pre­vent fur­ther loss of life or in­jury, dis­cover the cause of the col­li­sion for HM Coro­ner and se­cure any rel­e­vant ev­i­dence.”
