Traffic has come to a standstill around the neighbouring roads and bus services are being diverted, including the X30.

The crash is the second one to have occurred in the borough after a crash in Blenheim Chase, Leigh - which happened around the same time - also saw a car on it's roof.

Essex Police and the ambulance service have been contacted for comment.
