Others were not quite so happy about the lengthy delays.Former MP Brooks Newmark tweeted that traffic had not moved for two and a half hours and "@HighwaysEngland and @M11Info have been utterly useless keeping us informed as to what is going on. Traffic must be backed up several miles by now. #M11horsegate #M11".
