A major Thurrock road has been partially closed after a lorry has broken down and could potentially overturn.

The A126 in Grays, which follows through to intu Lakeside, has been closed between the B186 and the Lancaster roundabout as a result of the incident.

Traffic is slow moving on the approach to the West Thurrock shopping centre, with congestion building around the area.

Recovery of the lorry may take several hours and drivers are advised to avoid the area where possible.
