DRIVERS are facing "severe" delays on the Dartford Crossing as all traffic was held after a vehicle broke down on the bridge.

The AA is reporting long delays of 50 minutes - described as "severe" - due to an earlier stalled van on the Queen Elizabeth II (QEII) Bridge.

Traffic is queueing to just after junction 29 on the M25 in Essex.

All traffic had been held due to the break down, but all lanes have since been re-opened.

Delays remain.
