A major south Essex road is partially blocked after reports of a crash this afternoon.

The A129 London Road in Rayleigh is partially blocked both ways at Victoria Avenue, according to AA traffic news.

This is following reports of a crash near to the aquatics centre and BP petrol station, Essex County Council's traffic control says.

The incident has since cleared, according to traffic control, but traffic is slow in both Victoria Avenue and the A129 following the crash.
