A motorist suffered minor injuries in a collision involving a lorry and a car which caused delays in the morning rush hour.

Two lanes were closed on the A12 London-bound in Colchester following the accident at around 6.50am today.

An Essex Police spokesman earlier said the driver of a Volkswagen Polo suffered “possible head injuries”, but the force later confirmed the motorist had sustained “minor cuts” in the collision with a lorry.

The driver was being treated on the scene by paramedics.

Both lanes reopened at 8.15am.
