Drivers on the M11 are experiencing severe delays after a crash involving more than one vehicle near Stansted Airport this morning.

At least one lane of the southbound carriageway is blocked after a serious collision between Junction 9 at Saffron Walden and Junction 8 at Bishop’s Stortford and Stansted.

Drivers are reporting traffic is at a standstill following the accident and several took to social media to post photographs and videos of the queues.

There are also reports of traffic moving slowly on the opposite carriageway – northbound – due to the accident.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust said: “No casualties have been taken to hospital following a crash on the M11 this morning.

“The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust was called to a road traffic collision on the southbound carriageway between junction 9 and junction 8 for Stansted, believed to involve two vehicles and a coach.

“A rapid response vehicle and ambulance attended and treated two patients at the scene, neither of whom required taking to hospital.”
