A BROKEN down lorry is causing delays on the A127 this morning.

The lorry has broken down on the eastbound carriageway of the road near the junction at Rayleigh Weir with the A129.

The lorry has blocked one lane of the road and it is causing traffic to build up down towards the Fairglen Interchange where the A127 meets the A1245.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time in planning to travel in the area.
