Traffic is currently being diverted away from the Junction 31 of the M25 at the Dartford Crossing just outside London due to concerns for a woman on the bridge.

Essex Police released a statement at 11.18am to say they were called to the area shortly after 10am this morning (Saturday, April 16).

Police confirmed they had been called out due to “concerns for the welfare of a woman,” and have now closed the Dartford River Crossing.

Reports suggest it could be “a few hours” before the area reopens.
