AN EARLIER crash slowed traffic on the A13 near Pitsea this afternoon.

A gold Land Rover Freelander struck the central reservation barrier on the eastbound carriageway of the A13 just before 5pm.

Police say that no one was injured in the crash but they put in a series of road blocks to clear the car from the road.

Earlier information provided by Essex Highway's roads information centre about four vehicles being involved in the incident was not accurate.

There are still delays on the road at 6.10pm due to the earlier blockages.
