Oil Blocks The Bridge

Another dark day for the Dartford Crossing as oil leaks from a tanker on the approach to the Dartford Tolls

This has meant traffic in surrounding areas has come to a standstill

A spokesman for the Highways Agency said: “The spillage from a lorry is about 500m, from where it spilt on the bridge and where it has run down.

“One lane is currently closed on the bridge and three toll booths are also out of use.

“The A206 junction 1 slip road from the bridge is also closed.”

Delays are currently 90 minutues, the highways agency expect to have the road cleared up by this afternoon.
