Geese on the M25 Motorists on the M25 reported delays after the geese landed on the carriageway

Traffic was halted on the M25 earlier after drivers spotted a flock of geese on the carriageway.

The birds landed on the anticlockwise carriageway close to junction 11 at Chertsey.

The entry slip road onto the motorway was closed for a time at junction 11, with traffic queuing to junction 10, several people reported on Twitter.

Lauren Mackenzie tweeted: "This is why we may miss my flight! Geese on the M25."
