M25 crash update: Fatal vodka lorry accident closes part of motorway in Essex
Drivers on the M25 endured long delays after a section of the road was shut along the Essex stretch following a two-lorry fatal accident.
The M25 between junctions 27 and 28 was closed after a lorry carrying vodka collided with another lorry and caught fire.
The driver of the vodka lorry, who was in his 50s, was killed in the accident which happened half a mile west of junction 28 at Noak Hill.
The driver of the second vehicle suffered minor injuries.
Later, the anti-clockwise carriageway between the two junctions reopened, but the clockwise carriageway was still closed.
