There are six miles of traffic and police on scene after a vehicle has stalled on a major road.

Commuters are facing severe delays due to the partial blockage of the A127 on the Southend-bound carriageway near the Fairglen Interchange.

Traffic is queueing back to the M25 and delays are expected to last for a considerable amount of time.

Motorists are advised to seek alternative routes or allow extra time to travel.
