Breaking: Commuters warned of motorway chaos as huge fire closes down M25

We hope everyone is okay.

The M25 has been closed in both directions due to a 'severe' fire that the authorities are working to control. Traffic has been halted both ways as the black smoke is currently billowing across the carriageway.

Many commuters on Friday were confronted with rush hour standstill in due to the incident. Highways England explain that it is a 'severe HGV fire' and that the Essex fire and police departments are working hard to tackle.

Traffic is being held between junction 27, for the M11, and junction 28 at Brentwood. Suffice to say, you should allow extra time for your journey.
