Women arrested after person climbs on gantry at M25 near Dartford Crossing

OFFICERS have now resolved an incident which has caused a section of the M25 to be closed and a woman has been arrested.

Police responded to reports of someone on a gantry above the clockwise section between junctions 30 and 31 shortly after 11am today (Wednesday 20 July).

Officers attended and worked to resolve the situation quickly and safely and this required specialist resources.

The road was closed for a time but we worked to put a diversion in place to release traffic.

A woman has now been arrested and the road is being re-opened shortly.

Chief Inspector Anna Granger said: “I want to thank the public for their patience and understanding while we dealt with this incident.

“We are well prepared for incidents of disruption on our roads and to keep Essex moving, and we enacted these quickly.

“This was a challenging incident to resolve due to its nature but we resolved it as quickly and safely as possible.”
