A Kent Highways spokesperson said: “Our highway steward has attended the site this morning and installed cones and tape.

“The road is closed as the tree blocks both lanes – traffic is advised to seek an alternative route.

“Tree surgeons will be there as soon as possible to clear the route.”

Kent Highways have had multiple reports of weather related issues across the Kent road network due to the inclement weather.
