Four people, including two seriously, were injured after the collision on the A21 near Sevenoaks, Kent, at around 8.15pm yesterday. The road remains closed southbound while recovery work takes place.

Southbound queues were initially back to Chipstead, Kent. A diversion, which remains in place this morning, takes motorists through Sevenoaks and Seal on the A25 and then on local roads to rejoin the dual-carriageway at Riverhill, reports Kent Live.

The A21 is usually used as a major commuter route for those heading into the capital as it links with the M25 near Chipstead.
