Romford woman dies in A12 crash

A 29-year-old woman from Romford died after a road crash on Saturday.

The collision happened near Marks Tey when the woman was struck by a white Toyota Auris on the southbound carriageway at 1am on Saturday August 11.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene and the 44-year-old woman driver, who lives in the Marks Tey area, was treated for shock by paramedics at the scene.
