Highways England has informed drivers that the road is closed "all day" and warned of "very heavy traffic congestion in the surrounding areas, including Tonbridge".
A driver who was stuck near the scene for four hours said, “I got here around 2:40 am.
“The emergency services were already on site and the traffic was stopped, so that there were about 20 vehicles between me and the accident. A helicopter appeared a few times but did not land.
Around 6:15 a.m. a policeman came and took the details of everyone in the queue.
The traffic officials finally got the cars and vans reversed and drove up the two-lane road in the wrong direction at around 6.40 a.m. But half of the vehicles in the queue were trucks, and when I left they were preparing to go back three and a half miles. «
