5:57pm Thursday 17th October 2013 in Echo News
A SECTION of the A127 has been cut down to one lane after a manhole cover went missing.
Police reported the damage to Southend Council this afternoon, and emergency engineers were sent out to carry out an inspection on Arterial Road Eastbound, at the junction with Progress Road.
When engineers arrived they found the manhole cover had collapsed, and set about repairing the damage.
The lane will remain closed overnight, and will be opened once the concrete has set.
