A stalled van led to queues on the M23 of up to seven miles and congestion up to the M25 this morning (Wednesday December 12).

One lane was blocked on the M23 southbound before junction nine (Gatwick Airport).

This meant drivers faced delays of around 35 minutes to pass the area.

Highways England says traffic conditions have now returned to normal.
