Officers say that a lorry was struck by ‘unknown objects’ after they were hurled from the side of the motorway between junctions 5 and 6 of the clockwise carriageway near Clacket Lane service station.

The incident happened yesterday (December 28) at around 2.40pm - at the same time as reports of young people throwing pieces of wood onto the motorway.

A Surrey Police spokesman said: “Fortunately, no one was injured as a result of this incident.”
