A key route for traffic heading to the Port of Dover is closed this lunchtime after a crash involving two lorries.
The incident happened on the A2 at the Whitfield roundabout at around 10.25am and has led to the closure of the road in both directions between the A260 at Lydden Hill and the A256.
A spokesman for Kent Police said: “Officers are currently in attendance along with South East Coast Ambulance Service and Kent Fire and Rescue Service.
“The A2 is currently closed in both directions at the Whitfield roundabout.
“Significant delays are expected and motorists are advised to avoid the area and seek alternative routes, such as the M20, wherever possible.”
Highways England has said the closure is expected to remain in place for some time while emergency services respond to the crash.
