Have your say

THE M3 northbound to London has been completely closed after a fatal crash.

Motorists have been asked by Surrey Police to avoid the area and find alternative routes into London while they investigate the incident.

A blue Citroen and a red Audi collided shortly after 2am this morning between junction three at Lightwater and junction two at Thorpe Interchange.

A male passenger in the Audi was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police officers closed both carriageways between the junctions for around an hour while the debris was cleared and southbound lanes have since been reopened.

All northbound lanes are still closed, but officers hope they will be open by 8am.

Police are calling for witnesses and anyone with any information should contact them on 01483 639 922 quoting reference P11300146, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
