POLICE and paramedics were called to a notorious stretch of the A12 after two vans collided.

The Vauxhall Vivaro and Ford Transit hit each other just past junction 29, by the Ardleigh Interchange, on the northbound carriageway at about 6.50am.

Both vans went off the road but neither driver was seriously injured.

A speed camera is expected to be installed along the stretch of road in the future although it is not known if speed played a part in this incident.
