Highways Reporters

Three lanes of the M25 in Surrey have been closed off this morning (14 November 2014) after a section of the motorway collapsed following overnight roadworks.

Motorists are experiencing long delays between junction 11 and junction 9 due to emergency repairs that are taking place.

Many vehicles were left with damaged tyres after the road surface near Leatherhead collapsed during heavy rain.

Surrey Roads Police tweeted: "Not sure why it's failed but there were overnight repairs in that area last night."

They confirmed that road workers are clearing concrete debris from the anti-clockwise carriageway near junction 9.

The Highways Agency confirmed that police and repair specialists are at the scene. Road users have been advised to consider alternative routes.
