THE A12 has re-opened after it closed because a vehicle towing a horsebox had broken down.

The southbound road at Hatfield Peverel was closed by traffic officers at about 7.30pm.

Queuing traffic had began to form.

The vehicle has now been cleared from the area and traffic is beginning to flow again.
