Emergency services close M25 in both directions as air ambulance lands following major crash involving two lorries

The M25 in Surrey has been shut in both directions following a major crash involving two lorries and a van. An air ambulance has taken one man to hospital after landing in the carriageway between junctions 8 and 9 near Leatherhead in Surrey. Emergency services are currently on the scene following injuries to three drivers and a large oil spill. The driver of one of the lorries was taken to St George’s Hospital in Tooting, while the occupants of the other vehicles suffered minor injuries. Surrey Police said: ‘We are at the scene of a serious collision on the #M25 just prior to the J9 slip road on the clockwise carriageway. There is a considerable fuel spill. Air Ambulance on scene.’ Police have opened up a single lane in order to allow traffic to move past. There is a considerable fuel leak across all 4 lanes. This is both very dangerous especially to motorcyclists and if not cleared will cause damage to the road surface. We thank you for your patience.’ Motorists have been told to expect long delays into the afternoon, with some already tweeting of waits lasting more than three hours. Surrey Fire and Rescue Said : Fire crews from Godstone , Salfords and Leatherhead were sent to the incident between Junction 8 to 9 M25 involving 3 heavy good vehicles. Highways England are working extremely hard to make the road surface safe and open up at least 1 more lane past the scene. Once that is done they will assess if Junction 8 can reopen. Lanes One and Lanes Two will need to stay closed until recovery has been completed. More to Follow
