LFB was called to a large RTC situated within a tunnel along the M25. Due to the nature of this call, multiple units were dispatched along with a command unit.

Upon arriving on the scene, the LFB Incident Command noticed a large amount of smoke billowing out of the tunnel. Multiple fires had engulfed the whole tunnel and numerous casualties had been spotted, therefore a major incident was declared.

2 pumps were dispatched to the north side along with 2 pumps at the south. Both teams tackled the fire and eventually, access was given in order for the casualties to be extracted.

All fires were successfully extinguished. Debrief stated a total of 8 casualties were pulled from the fire but sadly only 2 survived.
