Van Fire on M25 Causes Major Delays and Frustration for Motorists on Busy Morning Commute

Delays on the M25 and QEII Bridge have been caused by a van fire between the Dartford and Stone junctions. According to reports, the incident has resulted in long queues on the busy motorway, with traffic backing up onto the bridge itself.

Fire crews were quickly dispatched to the scene, located between J1A and J1B, to extinguish the flames. Wearing breathing apparatus, they used high-pressure hose reel jets to put out the fire. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported and the cause of the fire is currently unknown.

The closure of one lane has caused major delays in the area, with reports of congestion stretching back to a mile before J30 on the A13 for Lakeside. This has resulted in a frustrating morning for motorists trying to navigate through the area.

Emergency services were first notified of the incident at around 10:15am and were able to clear the scene by 11am. Police have also been contacted for comment, but have yet to release any information regarding the incident.

As a local journalist, we will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as more information becomes available. In the meantime, commuters are advised to avoid the affected area and seek alternative routes if possible.
