Delays are expected after a collision on the clockwise section of the M25 Surrey, between junction 10 and junction 11

People are reported to be injured and motorists warned of delays following a "serious collision" on the M25 involving "up to seven vehicles".

Six ambulances and four fire engines are on the scene of the accident between junctions 10 and 11 in Surrey, in which two people are thought to have suffered "serious injuries".

Surrey Police said the clockwise carriageway is expected to remain closed "for some time".

In a statement, they said: "Surrey Police is currently at the scene of a serious collision involving a number of vehicles on the M25 motorway.

"Officers were called to the clockwise carriageway between junctions 10 and 11 near Addlestone following reports that up to seven vehicles had been involved in the collision.
