A northbound stretch of the A12 has re-opened after a lorry crash saw lanes closed.

The accident, involving a lorry, happened on the northbound carriageway near Kelvedon around 12.20pm on Monday, July 22.

The driver was not injured in the crash, although a large amount of fuel is said to have leaked onto one lane of the road.

As a precaution, police initially closed both lanes of the carriageway, although lane two was later the only closure with the assistance of Essex Highways and Highways England.

Police announced shortly after 3.15pm that the road would be re-opening.

Essex Highways has warned that traffic remains slow moving as congestion takes time to ease.

This is the second collision on the road today, after one lane was shut when a Ford Zetec was involved in a single vehicle collision.
