The M25 remains shut on the anticlockwise carriageway after a crane overturned and crashed through the central reservation. The incident happened shortly after 5.30pm yesterday but the route is still closed this morning, (Saturday, December 7). Both sides of the motorway were blocked following the incident, which happened between junctions 27 for the M11 and 28 for the A12. The clockwise route was reopened at around 5am this morning after resurfacing works were finished, however, three lanes are still shut. The anticlockwise direction remains shut.
The Crane was recovered at 3am and repair works are ongoing due to a severe diesel spillage that occurred during the accident. This affecting those travelling towards the M11 for London Stansted Airport, as well in and out of Essex in this area. Follow our live blog below for the latest on the M25 traffic:
