A man has escaped serious injury after a crash involving a lorry and a car into a parish hall in Great Baddow this morning.

Emergency services were called shortly after 8.30am to Maldon Road where a silver car and a low-loader lorry carrying a construction vehicle had been involved in a collision, with the lorry appearing to have also crashed into a wall near Great Baddow Parish Hall.
