Dozens of people have been injured in a pile-up involving more than 130 vehicles on a highway in the United Kingdom.

The accident happened in thick fog during rush-hour on a road bridge in Kent, south-east England.

Eight people were taken to hospital with serious injuries, as were about 30 others who suffered minor injuries.

Up to 200 more people were treated at the scene or given medical advice by ambulance crews.

The crash happened during Thursday's morning rush-hour on the Sheppey Crossing road bridge, a four-lane highway that connects the Isle of Sheppey to mainland Kent.

'Miracle' no-one was killed

Eyewitnesses described a mass of tangled trucks, cars, and a car transporter.

Chief Inspector Andy Reeves said he had never seen a crash like it in 20 years on the job.

"From my perspective, it's truly miraculous," he said. "It's very fortunate there were no fatalities."

Television pictures showed cars queuing for miles at the scene of the accident.

Martin Stammers, 45, told Kent Online the scene was "horrific".

"All you could hear was cars crashing," he said.

"We got out of our car and it was eerily quiet, with visibility down to just 20 yards [18 metres]."

The road remained closed for more than nine hours as police worked to clear wreckage from the area.
