There is heavy traffic on the A12 this morning as a result of a car crash earlier.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed they were called at 6am to reports of a collision on the west-bound side of the dual carriageway.

The road was partially closed while the damaged vehicles were removed. There were no reported injuries.

Traffic on Eastern Avenue is still queueing in both directions between the Moby Dick and Pettits Lane junctions, but all lanes have now reopened. There is also heavy congestion in Whalebone Lane.

Today’s incident comes after the A12 was closed briefly at the Moby Dick junction yesterday when an ambulance was involved in a collision with another car.
