A HORRIFYING van fire on the M25 has broken out and sparked rush hour travel chaos.
The vehicle erupted into a fireball this morning, sending plumes of black smoke into the air as emergency services tackled the inferno.
At present, all traffic is being held clockwise on the motorway from junction 5 on the M26 and the A21 in Sevenoaks until the Clacket Lane services.
A spokesman for National Highways confirmed: “Traffic has temporarily stopped on the M25 clockwise between J5 and J6 due to a vehicle fire.
“Traffic remains blocked and the Kent Fire and Rescue Service remains working on the scene.”
Disruption is expected for at least an hour following the shocking blaze.
