Drivers stuck in a queue on the Queen Elizabeth II bridge persuaded an ice-cream van to open whilst they waited to move.

The M25 Dartford crossing between Kent and Essex was closed by police at about 16:00 BST after a pedestrian was arrested after being seen behaving unusually and a suspicious item was found.

Motorist Mike Partridge described how he bought an ice-cream and chatted to other stuck travellers.
