A12 misery continues for drivers

DRIVERS were facing more misery on the A12 tonight after it was revealed one lane of the southbound carriageway will remain closed while repairs are carried out to a pothole.

Police were called to the busy road at 6am today after four vehicles were damaged by the pothole which was caused by a burst water pipe.

Work to fix the problem near the Hatfield Peverel turn-off has continued throughout the day and will be on-going tonight and into tomorrow morning, Essex Police said.

Drivers are advised to take alternate routes or face long delays.
