THE M25 has re-opened after an earlier multi-vehicle crash near the Dartford Tunnel.

The smash, which involved three cars and two HGVs, happened around 7am on Wednesday.

Four people were injured and taken to hospitals in Basildon, Darenth Valley, Romford and Whitechapel.

Police closed off the anti-clockwise carriageway between the Dartford Tunnel and junction 31 for Thurrock for more than five hours.

A 35-year-old man from Chatham, Kent was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

He has been released on police bail until Sunday, February 17, pending further enquiries.

Two people, reportedly including a 14-year-old boy were taken to hospital in separate stabbing incidents last night.

A young woman was left unconscious and needing hospital treatment after being subjected to a “despicable” sexual assault, police have said.

My husband is never referred to as a “working father”, writes Ellen Widdup.

There is nothing work than getting stuck in traffic jams caused by roadworks.

The southbound carriageway of the A11 near Barton Mills is currently closed after a three-vehicle crash.

The last day of February this year will see people across the country indulging in a pancake or two.

My half term week could best be described as a tale of two cinemas, writes Sheena Grant.
