Police incident on QEII Bridge causes major delays on M25 towards Kent

Traffic on the M25 is experiencing delays due to a police incident on the QEII Bridge, causing congestion for drivers heading towards Kent. The incident, which began around 12:45pm, involved concerns for someone on the Dartford Crossing. As a result, all Kent-bound traffic was temporarily held by police, causing queues to stretch back five miles. The disruption reached back to Junction 30, near Lakeside shopping centre in Essex, but thankfully, traffic has since been released. Essex Police, who are handling the situation, have now reopened all four lanes just before 1:30pm. They have assured the public that they are working to resolve the incident as quickly and safely as possible, and have asked for patience and understanding during this time. We will continue to provide updates as they become available.
