TRAFFIC: A12 lane closure caused long delays

A six vehicle collision on the A12 this morning caused seven mile tailbacks.

One lane was closed as emergency services attended to the incident.

The incident happened on a southbound lane of the A12 at around 8:30am on Tuesday (July 24th).

Highways England said in a tweet: “We have 1 lane closed due to a 6 vehicle collision between J23 and J22 #RivenhallEndSouth #Kelvedon.

“Recovery on scene. Long delays, please allow extra journey time. Will keep you updated as soon as we have information from scene.”

The road has since re-opened fully.
