THE QE2 bridge at the Dartford Crossing was shut after strong winds from Storm Jocelyn hit the UK.
National Highways closed the bridge, between Junctions 31 and 1A of the M25, at 01:45 GMT on Wednesday.
The agency said the closure was due to stay in place “in to and beyond peak times” and would only be lifted when it was “safe to do so”.
