People started to vent their frustrations on Twitter such as Clive Farnham from Crawley who tweeted that they should, “have a protest on the side of the road” and “allow others to go about their business”.

National Highways says there was disruption at turnoffs including Heathrow Airport, Swanley in Kent and the Godstone interchange.
