Long delays were reported on the M25 near Chertsey today (March 16) after a lorry and car collided on the highway this morning.

The crash took place near Junction 11 sometime before 7.30am when it was reported by Highways England.

The company described the closure of three lanes on the anti-clockwise section of the road, with emergency services rushing to attend the scene.

Surrey Police and Surrey Fire and Rescue Service were both reportedly in attendance, Highways England said.

Meanwhile the lane closures brought considerable delays in the area during the morning commute.

The crash is the second serious RTC to have occurred around Junction 11 on the M25 in recent days.

As the Surrey Comet reported previously, the entire motorway was forced to close on March 8 after another collision witnessed a driver air-lifted to hospital with serious injuries and delays in the area lasting several hours.

A new report compiled by rental company Wessex Fleet recently found that the M25 in Surrey ranked as the second most dangerous road in the UK concerning the number of speeding offences that were reported between 2019 and 2020.

According to the report, there were 23,558 speeding offences on the M25 reported over the time period, equating to fines issued by police worth a staggering £2,355,800.

Surrey Police were contacted for comment.
