Christmas travel hit by road and rail chaos
Little festive cheer on Britain’s roads and railways as planned engineering work coincides with car crashes and signal failures
Road crashes and rail disruption have delayed people heading off for Christmas.
On Britain’s busiest motorway, the M25, a multi-vehicle accident closed two lanes between junction five near Otford in Kent and junction six near Oxted in Surrey. There were also hold-ups for drivers after a broken-down lorry led to a lane closure on junction 12, south of Heathrow airport.
