A SECTION of the M25 has been reopened this afternoon - more than five hours after it was closed in the wake of an accident.

The large section of the major motorway was shut following the collision between a car and a lorry, which happened in the run-up to the busy morning rush hour today.

A spokeswoman for Essex police said the accident led to the anti-clockwise stretch of the road being closed between Junction 31 and Junction 29.
