This video shows the aftermath of a crash on the M25 today (Weds) that left a lorry hanging off a motorway bridge.

The main carriageway is currently closed at junction 2 for the Darenth Interchange due to the jack-knifed lorry.

Footage shows the HGV crashed into the side of the motorway barrier with part of its trailer and several wheels hanging off the bridge.

Sarah Hamer, 39, was travelling with her family in the car when they spotted the horrific crash.

Sarah said: "As far as we could see, the front of the lorry had impact marks.

"The motorway was closed from the Darenth interchange. 

''Obviously there was quite a few police in attendance and ambulances.

"It was really shocking to see."

There are at least six miles of tailbacks caused by the crash but thankfully no serious injuries have been reported.

Kent Police spokesman James Walker, said: "Road closures are in place following a collision between a lorry and a roadside barrier on the A282.

"The incident was reported to Kent Police at 1.20pm and resulted in part of the lorry's trailer breaching a safety barrier.

"No serious injuries have been reported, however the A2 is closed in both directions, at the junction for the Darenth Interchange, to ensure public safety. The anticlockwise M25 is also closed at junction 2.

"Motorists are advised to expect delays and, where possible, consider using an alternative route."
