M25 Warehouse Fire

Just on case you missed it in yesterday's news, or you haven't already experienced the 'ensuing chaos' on you way into work this morning: let us bring you up to speed.

Yesterday morning at around nine the Eagle Global Logistics warehouse on the Dolphin Industrial Estate at Purfleet, Essex caught fire (resulting in what the papers call "a massive blaze").

As a result the Dartford Crossing bridge and tunnel were closed and the M25 was shut between Junctions 30 and Junction 2.

The Highways Agency have warned that the crossing will be closed until at least 2pm today, and a 27-mile diversion has been put in place via the Blackwall Tunnel.

You can get up-to-date information from the Highways Agency here.
