ESSEX motorists are facing travel disruption this morning after a serious accident resulted in a busy main road becoming shut-off.

The A12’s Londonbound carriageway is currently partially blocked after a lorry crashed into the central reservation.

The incident occurred between Sandown and Howe Green and is understood to be causing queues of stationery drivers all the back to Boreham.

There is also reports of slow traffic travelling northbound past the scene. 

More information as we get it.
