A 19-mile diversion has been put in place to alleviate severe traffic which is mounting on the M25 near Brentwood following a serious crash.
Essex Police officers were called to reports of a serious crash on the M25 anticlockwise between junction 27 and junction 28 at around 11.15pm last night, October 15.
The M25 remains closed anticlockwise between the Brook Street Roundabout, at junction 28 with the A12, and junction 27 (M11) as of this morning (October 16).
A specialist cleaning team are at the scene working to remove debris.
An Essex Police spokeswoman said: “Anyone who has dash cam or information is asked to contact the serious collision investigation team on 01245 240590 or email CollisionAppeal@essex.pnn.police.uk.”
Highways England tweeted confirming that the road “will be closed well into the morning peak”.
They advise that drivers approaching the closure at junction 28 may exit the M25 and join the A12 into London.
At the junction with A406 (the North Circular), drivers can join the A406 north towards the M11.
They can then join the M11 northbound, to re-join the M25 at junction 27 and follow the ‘hollow black square’ diversion symbol.
