Traffic standstill

Traffic was brought to a standstill as a cow in the road shut the M25 in both directions.

This happened near J6 A22 in Godstone.

All traffic was held for around 20 minutes just after 9am while the cow was on the anticlockwise side of the road.

All lanes have since been reopened.
