It was causing queues on the M25 (credit: Highways England)
Traffic officers have closed Arterial Road between junction 31 of the M25 and West Thurrock Way, as you head towards Lakeside.
That caused traffic to be held before the Dartford Tunnels to stop traffic building up inside them, but the M25 has since reopened.
? West Thurrock Way / M25 junction 30 to 31 ? Dangerous road surface, avoid area entirely. Police are on scene. AVOID AREA.
