TRAFFIC is building for motorists this morning following a crash on a busy main Colchester road.

The A120's westbound carriageway near the A1232 crown interchange just off the A12 has become partially blocked.

It comes after reports of a crash not far from Ipswich Road at 8.04am today.

As a result, drivers are being told to expect traffic congestion in the area.

Traffic control said: "A120: partially blocked, crash, queuing traffic.

"Partially blocked and queuing traffic due to crash on A120 westbound before the A1232 crown interchange."

Essex Police has been contacted for more information.
