A major road had reportedly been closed near a south Essex town centre after a crash.

Eastwood Road was closed due to a crash between Websters Way (A129) and Daws Heath Road, close to Rayleigh town centre, according to Essex County Council's traffic control.

Traffic was queueing on the busy road both ways between Websters Way and Daws Heath Road, AA reports.

Drivers also faced delays in surrounding roads including the A129 and Websters Way.

The incident has now cleared, although traffic remains in the area.
