Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Curse For Dering Wood -

Rush-hour traf­fic was brought to a near-halt on the M20 af­ter an ac­ci­dent on Mon­day af­ter­noon.

Two lanes were closed and traf­fic was slow on the re­main­ing lane on the cost­bound car­riage­way near junc­tion 10 fol­low­ing a two-car col­li­sion just be­fore 5.15pm.

Lanes two and three were closed and po­lice and paramedics were quickly at the scene.

A po­lice spokesman said: “We re­ceived a re­port of a col­li­sion in­volv­ing two cars on the coast­bound M20 near Junc­tion 10 at 5.13pm on Mon­day.”

Traf­fic had to held up to re­move the dam­aged ve­hi­cles and al­low for the re­open­ing of the en­tire stretch of road.

One of the lanes was re-opened by 6.35pm but the road did fully re-open un­til about 7.15pm
