Part of a road has been closed off this afternoon following an accident involving a panel-sided van.

The crash happened on the narrow road between the Brantham roundabout and East Bergholt crossroads.

Police said the road closure was needed to recover the van and the width of the road would not have allowed traffic to pass safely during the operation.

There was also a need to clear some spilt diesel from the road surface. Officials from Highways England had organised for workers to attend to deal with the incident.

The road is expected to be closed for two hours and reopen mid-afternoon.
