Burst water main closes A12 lane

Part of the A12 in Essex has been closed after a large pothole appeared on the inside lane of the southbound carriageway.

The hole, which has damaged a number of vehicles, is just past the Hatfield Peverel turn-off.

Anglian Water has confirmed that the hole was caused by a burst water pipe.

The lane remains closed while repair work is carried out and is not expected to be open before Wednesday.
