Two lanes are closed on the M40 following a crash involving two lorries this afternoon. 

Emergency services are on the scene on the northbound carriageway between junction 1A for the M25 and junction 2 for Beaconsfield. 

Lanes one and two of four have been closed by Highways England and Thames Valley Police due to the crash and a fuel spillage. 

Firefighters also attended after being called at 12.17pm but fortunately, no one was trapped. Two men were treated by South Central Ambulance Service and are thought to have suffered minor injuries. 

Traffic is passing the crash slowly and there are delays in the area. 

As of 5pm, there are still long delays back to Hillingdon Circus due to the recovery of the two lorries and the fuel spillage and two lanes are still closed. 

Once recovery has been carried out, the road surface will need to inspected.
