MAJOR delays are being reported on roads around Bucks this afternoon after an earlier accident blocked the M25.

All four lanes of the anti clockwise section between junctions 16, for the M40, and 17, Maple Cross, were blocked following a multi vehicle collision just before 11.30am.

Traffic is queuing back to junction 20, for Watford, and motorists are being diverted off the motorway onto the A412 and A40.

The Highways Agency has warned however drivers should avoid the area and seek alternative routes if possible, as delays are expected on the diversion routes as well.
