The M25 is closed for rush hour following a serious crash with an ambulance this morning.

Police say that the motorway has been closed at junctions 8 and 9 after the crash at 3.30am.

It is affecting traffic flowing anti-clockwise into Surrey following the incident with a car, ambulance and HGV.

At 6am the force tweeted to confirm the closure and warned it could be in place for some time.

They said at that time the road would be closed for at least three hours.

That's sure to bring rush hour chaos to anybody who was hoping to drive to work in the area today.

Surrey Police tweeted: "#M25 closed J9 – J8 anti-clockwise after a car, ambulance and HGV collision at 3.30am. Road expected to be closed for at least a further 3 hours."

One person has been taken to hospital according to a statement on the force's website.

The statement read: "The collision happened just before 3.30 on the anticlockwise M25, between junctions 9 and 8, close to Walton on the Hill.

"The driver of the car, a black BMW, suffered serious leg injuries in the collision and was taken to hospital by ambulance.

"The occupants of the other vehicles were unharmed during the collision.

"The anticlockwise M25 has been closed at junction 9, and will remain closed for at least three hours (into the rush hour) while the vehicles are recovered, the scene is cleared and collision investigation officers carry out their work. Surrey Fire and Rescue service, and Highways England are assisting."
