A LARGE fire at a skip yard on the Sidcup and Orpington border which started on Saturday night (December 3) is causing delays in the area.

Sevenoaks Way is closed both ways between the A224 Cray Road/ A20 (Crittal’s Corner) and Midfield Way.

The road is closed due to the blaze at the site at the end of Cornwall Drive which started at around 8pm on Saturday evening.

Bus routes 51, B14 and R11 are being diverted via Leesons Hill, St Paul’s Cray Road and Perry Street.
