Overturned lorry causes M25 chaos

Rush hour motorists faced traffic chaos this morning after a crash on one of the busiest motorways in Britain. One lane on the M25 anti-clockwise is closed following a smash between a lorry and a car at around 6.07am today (Tuesday February 21). Delays are expected until 2.30pm this afternoon as emergency services clear the overturned lorry.

The crash between junctions 17 (Maple Cross) and 16 (M40 interchange) has left the lorry hanging precariously over the edge of the outer barrier, with pictures showing the vehicle teetering on its side. Crews from Gerrards Cross, Rickmansworth and Garston attended but luckily no-one was trapped.

The lane is expected to open between 2pm and 2.15pm. And firefighters had to rescue an injured man following a crash on Whitepit Lane, Wooburn Green, at around 9.30pm last night (Monday February 20).

Crews from Beaconsfield, one from High Wycombe and two officers attended.

They were also called out at around 2.40pm yesterday afternoon to rescue two people who were shut in a lift in Townsend Road, Chesham.

One appliance and crew from Amersham and one from Gerrards Cross attended.
