The BBC are saying "2 artics and a van....." but from the short aerial shot it looks like aMH with a rear window and a passenger access door on the rhd side..... i.e. either a "foreign" registered or built MH......

They said the road is expected to be closed for the rest of the day which indicates either a fatality or an rtc that is potentially life-=threatening or life-changing.

I hope (and pray) that all turns out to be much less of a problem than that and that the only problem is the delays caused by the incident to those waiting (patiently) on the road behind.....

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

nasty.

and that is one of the longest stretches of motorway without any junctions to divert traffic off - from the M25 to almost the M20.

I think Blobsta lives somewhere near there, maybe if he's on he can update things?

Only what I have seen, as I live very close to the junc m20/m26

Looked over the bridge and it is closed, but as yet cannot see where the accident is. From the M26 start going west it is 18 miles to the next exit. A22. I will post more if I can.

looking at other pictures, that van may be one of those small vans used by eastern european delivery firms with a bed fitted over the cab rather than a motorhome?
