THE Army and Navy Flyover has reopened after a technical fault forced it to close for more than two hours.

The bridge closed shortly after 8.15am, at the height of morning rush hour, and led to long delays in the area.

Queues stretched back to the Sandon Slip of the A1114, Essex Yeomanry Way but there were queues on all approaches.

At 10.40am, traffic in the area was still slow-moving.
