Dartford Crossing live traffic: Is Dartford Bridge closed? Latest traffic disruption

Is Dartford Bridge closed?

Travel disruptions were expected as a result of the storm with hundreds of flights cancelled.

The Dartford Bridge was no exception and was closed for a period on Sunday morning.

In the case of strong winds, like those experienced at the weekend, three precautions can be taken.

The bridge was closed overnight on Saturday as Storm Dennis hit.

Heavy rain and high winds meant the necessary precautions had to be taken and the bridge was shut.

The QEII bridge links Thurrock in Essex with Dartford in Kent.

Two people died in Kent over the weekend as a result of Storm Dennis.

One man, a teenager aged 19, was pulled from the sea and declared dead shortly after.

Another man was believed to have fallen overboard a Maltese tanker that was moored just off the Kent coast.

A distress call was issued from the ship in the early hours of the morning, and a body was found after a seven-hour search.

A coastguard spokesman said: “At around 1pm, after many hours of searching, a body was sadly found in the water by the RNLI Margate lifeboat and has been brought to shore.”
