Walls destroyed in Colchester lorry crash

The lorry is blocking the whole road (Tom Ward)

A crash between a lorry and a van has closed a road in Colchester during rush hour this morning.

The truck has jackknifed across Butt Road, near the junction with Beaconsfield Avenue, knocking down several garden walls.

Police on the scene say there were no injuries as a result of the collision, which happened at around 7.15am.

The road reopened just before 9am - the closure caused long delays on surrounding routes.
