Romford: A12 blocked by overturned van

A van that fell off the back of a lorry caused delays and disruption on the A12 in Romford.

The Bedford Rascal Van was being transported on a low-loader lorry when it tipped off and landed on its roof, causing a fuel spill.

The incident happened near the junction with Pettits Lane on Thursday, November 15, at about 10.50am.

Police, an ambulance and a Romford fire crew were called out. The fire brigade put sand over the fuel and cordoned off the road.

No one was injured and police re-opened the A12 just before 12 noon.
