Two die in M25 collision in Surrey

Two people have died after a crash on the M25 in the early hours of this morning. An HGV collided with a black people carrier just after 3am on Saturday going anti-clockwise between Junctions 12 and 13 in Surrey. The driver and passenger in the people carrier both died.

Police say their next of kin have been informed and are appealing for anyone who saw the collision, or who may have footage of it, to come forward. A third vehicle was also involved. The occupants of that vehicle and the HGV were uninjured.

The motorway was closed anti-clockwise for several hours this morning and disruption and delays have continued even after the road was re-opened. Police said this in a statement: ‘The anticlockwise M25 was closed between J13 and J12 while Surrey Police and Highways England worked with the other emergency services to recover the vehicles involved and carry out investigation work.’ ‘Following a partial opening, the motorway was fully reopened around 10.15am.

We thank the public for their patience while we carried out this complex work.’

People are being urged to check the route before they travel and to seek alternative routes if possible.

If you are travelling to Heathrow or Gatwick airports you should leave plenty of extra time.
