A woman in her 70s has died in a horrific freeway accident between a truck, two vans and a car.
Police officers have urged drivers who witnessed the tragedy to come forward following the collision on the M25 today.
Officers were called to a clockwise section of the carriageway between junctions 11 and 12 near Chertsey just before 2pm.
They closed all three lanes and the driver of the car was taken to the hospital.
It was confirmed tonight that despite the best efforts of medics, she did not survive her injuries.
Her next of kin have been informed.
The freeway remained partially closed for several hours.
Motorists have been warned to stay away as six-mile long queues formed in the area.
A driver affected by the delays said she was stuck in traffic for two and a half hours.
PCs left the carriageway just before 10pm and wrote on Twitter: “We are finished at the M25 road accident site.
“The highways are in the process of clearing the debris.
“Thanks for your patience.”
In a witness call tonight, Surrey Police said: “We are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the collision or have further information or dashcam footage to contact us and assist us in this investigation.
“If you can help, please contact us quoting PR/P22070020.”
