A KENLEY man who drove for NINE miles the wrong way down the M25 and A2 in Kent has been jailed.

Mitchell Locke, 20, drove his black BMW 120d anti-clockwise on the clockwise section of the M25 shortly before 2.30pm on September 4.

Numerous people called 999 to report drivers having to move out of the way of Locke's car around junction 4.

The vehicle came off the motorway at the Swanley Interchange, before rejoining the carriageway and continuing the wrong way to junction two.

The BMW came off at the Darenth Interchange, continuing the wrong way by heading east, towards Canterbury on the A2.

Locke, of Bourne Park Close, then exited at the busy Bean interchange heading directly into oncoming traffic trying to join the A2 before he finally collided with a Suzuki Swift and a Nissan Leag at 2.39pm.

Locke was sentenced on Friday (January 30) at Dartford and Gravesham Magistrates Court after pleading guilty to dangerous driving.

He will serve a 14 month sentence in a young offenders' institute and was also banned from driving for three years.

He will also need to take an extended driving test before he is allowed to get behind the wheel again.

Sergeant Rob Dell, of Kent Police's Roads Policing Team, said: "For around 10 minutes, Locke travelled the wrong direction on a major motorway and a major dual-carriageway.

"Where there was no hard shoulder he would move out into the live carriageway into oncoming traffic. It is remarkable there were no serious injuries."
