Five miles of tailbacks caused commuters to grind to a half on the A12 this morning.

According to the AA route planner, one lane of the A12 was closed on the Essex-Suffolk border, just before junction 30 at Stratford St Mary.

Queueing traffic built up back to Colchester, onto the Crown Interchange and towards the Colchester United stadium at junction 28.

An Essex Police spokesman said: "We are currently at the scene of a road traffic collision on the A12.

"We were called at 6.30am with reports that a blue Ford Zetec was involved in a single vehicle collision between junctions 29 and 30.

"No injuries have been reported and no arrests have been made.

"Please expect some delay whilst the vehicle is recovered."

As of 8.30am, traffic has eased on the road and the closed lane has reopened.
