A section of Stock Road was blocked this morning after a crash involving two vehicles.

The road, which is also called the B1007 and connects Chelmsford and Stock, was closed off temporarily after a crash happened at the junction onto Ship Road at around 8am today.

The incident, which happened near a Shell garage and the Ship pub, caused the road to be blocked in both directions until around 9:37am.

Although the blockage has been cleared, heavy traffic is still present and is queueing back into Stock village if you are travelling towards Chelmsford.
