M25 slip road closed after accident

A SLIP road of the M25 is expected to be closed for up to four hours this evening (Tuesday) after a lorry tipped over.

Police are currently clearing the westbound entrance of junction 23, at South Mimms Services, after timber poured out of an articulated lorry, which fell on its side.

The vehicle tipped at 4pm and it is currently causing “hell” on the motorway.

A WGC worker, who was bound for Surrey via the M25, said: “The queues are massive on both sides of the road.

“It looks like it could be going on for hours yet. I don’t know how I’m going to get home or what time because the M25 is like a car park at the moment; it’s hell.”
