A crash on the Braintree bypass is causing long delays for commuters.

The A120 westbound is closed at the junction of London Road following a two vehicle crash.

The collision happened just before 7.40am this morning. 

Queues have formed as far back as Galleys Corner roundabout and traffic throughout the town is heavy as drivers look to avoid the incident.

Update 9.50am

The crash has now been cleared and traffic is easing on both the A120 and the roads in the town centre.
