It appears that our part of Kent is closed for this afternoon at least.
The M2 is now closed in both directions, following what I assume is a serious accident, with tailbacks to the A229. This is, I think the third such incident in two months and I think that the A229 has been closed at least twice during the same period.
In fact, I can’t recall a time that I’ve noticed, either from the air or from being stuck behind several miles of cars, that the roads system has been halted so regularly due to serious and fatal accidents.
Ed: The latest news is that a tragedy unfolded on the M2 this morning reportedly, with one person pronounced dead and another crtically injured at the scene of an accident. Firefighters were searching for a third person in the wreckage.
The crash involved a car and a lorry and took place at 10.30am on the coastbound carriageway at junction five for Sittingbourne.
