DRIVERS are battling traffic chaos this morning due to a rush-hour accident blocking a busy road and impacting several others.

The A120's eastbound carriageway between Ardleigh Crown (A12) and Hare Green (A133) is currently obstructed by a crash.

As a result of the incident queues are backing onto the A12's Colchester bypass all the way to the J27 Spring Lane turn-off.

The accident is also affecting other roads in Colchester, including the likes of Ipswich Road where traffic is set to have come to a standstill.

One driver, who is trying to travel into the town, says no cars can access the A120 from the Ardleigh interchange and police are now stopping vehicles.

More information as we get it.
