A broken down crane on the A127 has forced traffic to stall all the way back to the M25.

The break down blocked off one lane on the A127 Eastbound near to Noak Hill and the Nevendon Interchange.

It was first reported at around 7.45 this morning.

After an hour of frustrations for commuters, queues are now as far back as junction 29 of the M25.

A crash on the opposite side of the A127, between Noak Bridge and Nevendon Interchange had also forced traffic to stall after it had blocked one lane on the road going Londonbound.

That incident has now been cleared.
