Two people have been taken to hospital after a Peugeot crashed into a barrier and lamppost on the M25 at the weekend.

Surrey Police are appealing for witnesses after the incident, which took place at Junction 7 of the anti-clockwise lane of the M25.

A silver Peugeot 306 collided with a barrier and a lamppost, before coming to rest on the slip road to the M23.

Officers attended at around 6.15pm on October 27, following multiple reports of a collision on the slip road between junctions 7 and 8 of the M23.

The driver of the Peugeot, an elderly man, has been taken to hospital with life threatening injuries. The passenger in the vehicle is also at hospital with minor injuries.

The road was closed for a substantial period of time to allow the emergency services to do their work.

Two lanes of the M25 clockwise were reopened shortly after 7pm, with a diversion via junction 8 and the clockwise slip road for vehicles wanting to use the M25 to reach the M23.

Officers are keen to speak to anyone who saw the collision or the manner of driving of the Peugeot prior to the collision.

They are particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have captured the incident on dash-cam or helmet-cam.

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation into this collision is asked to call Surrey Police on 101 urgently, quoting reference PR/18258499
