The driver, a man in his 50s from Wiltshire, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The southbound carriageway was closed while the 44-tonne lorry, laden with timber on its side, was recovered. The carriageway was reopened at 5.30am this morning.

Today officers and forensic collision investigators from Essex Police are continuing to determine the cause of the crash.
