The air ambulance has attended a road crash on the A120 in north Essex.

Fire crews were called to the road near Little Bromley at about 8.15am.

A woman was trapped in one of the vehicles on the Colchester-bound road.

Crews used cutting equipment to remove the roof of the car and release her. She was in the care of medics by about 9.25am.
