M23 flooding: Motorway to ‘remain closed for several hours’
This is the scene on the M23 this morning as floodwater cascaded onto the carriageway.
The motorway remains closed in both directions between junctions 10 and 11.
Highways England say the ‘substantial flooding’ will take some time to clear.
A spokesman said: “Our maintenance teams continue to work on clearing the water but the road is likely to remain closed for several more hours due to the volume of water involved.”
Diversions are in place.
