Baby dies following van crash on A12 at Marks Tey

A baby has died in hospital following a crash between a car and a van on an A12 slip road in Essex.

A blue Volkswagen Passat struck a white Iveco van, which was stationary on the slip road on the northbound carriageway at Marks Tey at 1220 BST on Monday.

The 10-month-old boy from Luton in Bedfordshire was taken to Colchester Hospital but later died.

A 28-year-old man and two women, aged 28 and 71, who were also in the car were injured, police said.

The northbound carriageway was closed but has since reopened.
