The A120 has reopened at Little Tey following a serious crash involving two lorries and three other cars.

The incident, near to the Kings Arms pub, had blocked the road in both directions for motorists travelling between Marks Tey and Coggeshall.

Essex Police described the crash as serious.

It involved a number of vehicles including a Scania skip lorry. a Volkswagen Golf and a Volvo lorry.

The East of England Ambulance Service said one woman who was trapped in a vehicle had life-threatening injuries.

She was flown by the Essex Air Ambulance to the major trauma centre at the Royal London Hospital, but Essex Police now say she is not thought to be in a life-threatening condition.

A 51-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving. He has been taken to Colchester Police Station for questioning.

The crash happened at 7.33am.

Fire crews from Braintree, Colchester, and the brigade’s urban search & rescue team are at the scene, as well as two ambulances, a paramedic car and members of the ambulance service’s Hazardous Area Response Team.
