The road had been closed from around 7:10pm when the collision between two HGVs took place, causing one of them, carrying tomato puree, to shed its load.

One of the drivers was injured but this is not thought to have been serious and they have since been discharged from hospital.

The road has been closed for all of the morning and into the afternoon with emergency resurfacing works being carried out between Junction 31 (M11) and Junction 21 (Brampton Hut Interchange).
