Weather: Chaos on the A12 clears

DELAYS on the A12 caused by snow, ice and broken down vehicles have cleared.

Motorists faced major delays at various points along the route as snow ploughs were brought in to clear parts of the carriageway near Ardleigh.

On the Colchester bypass in the northbound carriageway, between junctions 27 and 29, one lane was closed because of snow on the road.

One eyewitness, travelling to work in Felixstowe, was stuck in traffic for an hour as police sent gritters and snow ploughs through to clear the road.

He said his normal journey to work takes 45 minutes but today it took him an hour just to get to Ardleigh on the A12.
