Commuters will be in for a long journey home following the closure of the M25 anti-clockwise following a serious incident earlier this afternoon.

The motorway is shut between junctions 23 and 21a after a lorry carrying cooking oil and foodstuff overturned, spilling its contents and causing a fire on the carriageway.

Emergency services remain on scene alongside structural engineers assessing damage to the road and overhead gantry, and a police investigation is under way.
