The A12 in Colchester has reopened after an earlier incident.

Following the incident the A12 London-bound was closed at Eight Ash Green and Marks Tey because of a road traffic collision.

A police spokesman reported the incident was a motorcyclist coming off their bike, and that no other vehicles involved.

They added that there didn’t appear to be any injuries.

The three vehicles involved were a white transit van, a white Vauxhall Astra and a black BMW X5.

A police spokesman said there were two slight injuries.
