There were severe delays on the A12 earlier after emergency services were called to a crash near Witham.

National Highways said delays of an hour were occurring due to two lorries colliding on the northbound carriage.

It has now been confirmed that the A12 is open between J23 and J24 after the spillage caused by the crash has been cleared.  

National Highways have, however, warned that there will be residual delays of around 45 minutes in the area.
