A crash on the QEII Bridge early this morning has led to traffic queues and delays.

In a post on X, National Highways notified drivers that lanes three and four of the A282 towards Dartford Crossing were closed after a crash resulted in one vehicle being overturned.

Drivers were warned to expect delays of up to 30 minutes whilst works were underway to recover the vehicle.

Both lanes were closed from 5am until 6:20am, with drivers warned to expect delays of 20 minutes due to traffic queues of up to three miles.

Essex Police confirmed that it was called to the scene, but that there were no injuries.
