A man has been taken to hospital in a potentially serious condition after a crash on the A12 between two vehicles - with the road being closed so an air ambulance can land.

The dual carriageway was blocked between Hatfield Peverel and the Boreham Interchange as a result of the incident - and remained largely shut during much of the evening rush hour only opening again fully just after 6pm. 

One person has been taken to hospital in a potentially serious condition. 

Essex Police, who were called to the incident at around 11.50am, had advised people to avoid the area. 

Three fire engines and three ambulances were on the scene and both carriageways will remain closed so that officers can investigate, recover the vehicles and to allow repair works to be carried out.
