A CAR has left the road and gone over a crash barrier closing the A12.

A diversion was put into place from junction 28, near the Weston Home Community Stadium, on the northbound carriageway after damage was caused to about 20 metres of barrier.

The crash took place at junction 29 by the slip road with the A120.

A white Kia Picanto crashed just after 7.30am.

A second crash, on the eastbound A120, where a car drove into a sign near Frating, also partially blocked the road.

Emergency services were called to the second incident minutes after the first.

Both were cleared by 9am and the roads re-opened.
