The M11 motorway suffered serious delays following a collision with a delivery van and the central reservation after two roads were closed on the Essex motorway.

Two lanes (of three) were blocked on the M11 south in Essex between J5 and J4 (for the North Circular Road) because a delivery van had an accident with the Central Reserve.

Highways England arranged an electrician to visit the scene as the collision resulted in significant damage to a junction box.

All emergency services were present at the crash.

With only one lane open, there were more than three miles of congestion approaching one hour late than normal.
