The road between Colchester and Braintree is closed in both directions after a serious accident.

The accident occurred on the A120 between Church Lane and Salmon’s Corner, near to Coggeshall, after power lines were downed due to the severe weather. Emergency services were called shortly after 8.15pm and paramedics treated two people who were in a car. One suffered a minor leg injury and another suffered a back injury and was taken to Colchester General Hospital to be treated for potential spinal injuries.

Witnesses described long queues in both directions and it is not known when the road will re-open.

Motorists have also reported treacherous driving conditions on the A12 in Witham.
