Hole appears in M2 central reservation

A hole has appeared in the middle of the M2 in Kent, closing a 10-mile (16km) section of the motorway. Long tailbacks built up after the M2 in east Kent was shut between junction five, near Sittingbourne, and junction six, south of Faversham.

The Highways Agency, which is investigating what caused it, said the hole measured 16ft (5m) by 6ft (2m).

A spokeswoman said the road would be reopened "when it is safe to do so".
