Motorway is now fully reopened following hours of disruption
A key stretch of the M20 has reopened after two serious crashes earlier this morning forced it to shut for almost eight hours.
The coastbound section between junction 1, for the M25 and junction 3, the M26 interchange was shut since police were first called to the scene on a smash between a lorry and a motorcyclist at around 6am.
A second incident involving further vehicles happened at the same location shortly after.
Police, Kent Fire and Rescue Service and the South East Coast Ambulance Service all attended the scene and three people have been taken to hospital.
