Part of the A12 near Colchester United’s football ground was closed for a short time to allow emergency services to deal with a crash.

The road was closed on the northbound carriageway from junction 27 to junction 28 – The Colchester Community Stadium – from 8.35am to 8.50am.

All lanes have now reopened but heavy traffic is still being reported in the area due to the earlier closure.
