Lorry driver arrested after M20 fatal crash

A Belgian lorry driver has been arrested after a man was killed on the M20 in Kent.

Police believe the man was refuelling his Citroen Saxo car on the hard shoulder when it was hit by a foreign-registered lorry.

The crash happened at about 18:45 GMT on Monday on the motorway's southbound carriageway between junctions eight for Leeds Castle and nine for Ashford.

The lorry driver was arrested and taken to Maidstone police station.

The M20 was closed southbound between junctions eight and nine for more than three hours. It reopened around 23:30 GMT.

On Tuesday morning, a car crashed in to a foreign registered vehicle on the M2, coastbound between junctions four and five, near Rainham.

Kent Police said a black Nissan Qashqai car allegedly crashed into the rear of a white heavy goods vehicle which was stationary on the hard shoulder.

Police are appealing for witnesses to both incidents.
