LONDON: Dozens of people were hurt, some seriously, when more than 100 cars were caught up in a huge pile-up on a bridge east of London during foggy conditions on Thursday morning.

The crushed   wrecks of cars and Lorries were spread across the Sheppey Crossing as vehicles smashed into each other in a series of collisions at about 7.20 a.m. (0630 GMT).

Firefighters cut six people from their vehicles and 35 were taken to hospital, eight with serious injuries.

Witnesses said there was thick fog at the Crossing linking the Isle of Sheppey with mainland Kent, 80 km east of London.

Police said they were still investigating the cause of the accident.
