The lorry driver who died in Noak Hill when his HGV collided with the back of another lorry has been named as Kulbip Dhillon of Grays, Thurrock.

Mr Dhillon, 57, died of burns, the post-mortem revealed.

Both vehicles involved in the crash caught fire. Six crews, including one from Brentwood, fought for nearly two hours to put the blaze out, along with an urban search and rescue team and an incident command centre from Clacton.
