Two people have been arrested after people were seen leaving the rear of a lorry near Colchester. 

Police were called just before 9.20am this morning, Thursday, September 30, to the service stations on the A120 near the A12 at Ardleigh.

An Essex police spokesman said the arrests were made following a sighting of people exiting the rear of the lorry.

The westbound carriageway of the A120 was blocked earlier as a result of the incident but has since reopened. 

A spokesman for Suffolk police said that enquiries are still ongoing.
