A BUSY intersection of the A12 and A130 had to be closed this morning after a crash.

At about 11.30am a white Ford KA, grey Vauxhall Amiga and a white truck collided with each other on the roundabout of the junction in Howe Green.

Police officers were forced to shut off the roundabout while the scene was cleared, causing delays in the area.

The road was reopened at 12.30pm with paramedics providing treatment for minor injuries to three people at the scene, although none were hospitalised.
