Two people have suffered serious injuries in a collision on the M25 in Surrey involving six vehicles including a tanker.

The crash happened at about 13:20 BST on the clockwise carriageway between junctions 10 and 11 near Addlestone.

A man in his 60s was airlifted to hospital in London with potentially life threatening injuries, Surrey Police said.

Another man was seriously hurt and six other people suffered minor injuries.

The collision involved a tanker, a van and four other vehicles, police said.

Six ambulances and four fire engines attended the crash.

The road was closed for several hours while emergency services were on the scene.

Two lanes have since reopened, police said.
