A crash in which a man died when his BMW collided with a lorry after
police tried to stop the vehicle will be investigated by the police
The M25 was closed clockwise between junctions 10 and 11 after the silver BMW collided with the back of an articulated lorry at around 11.55pm yesterday, Surrey Police said.
