MOTORISTS are being urged to avoid the anticlockwise carriageway of the M25 between junctions 27, by the M11, and 28, by the A12, following a collision between a car and a lorry.

Police were alerted at 12.42pm to reports of a collision between a Rover 75 and a lorry, which has resulted in a fuel leak from the lorry.

Two lanes are currently closed. No one is thought to be seriously injured.

The fire service and Highways Agency are at the scene and dealing with the fuel spillage. Congestion in the area is likely for some time.
