Drivers were warned to expect delays after a lorry overturned at the Pitsea flyover. 

Police and fire crews were called to the A13 Southend bound slip road at 6.30am.

It is understood there are no injuries but a diversion is in place along the old A13 while the road is cleared. 

Both slip roads have been closed at the roundabout.
