Shunt with barrier caused morning delays on A406

A shunt with a barrier on the A406 this morning caused delays when firefighters had to close the road.

All southbound lanes between the M11 junction and the Redbridge roundabout had to close for around 10 minutes at 7.45am.

The accident involved a female driver who is believed to have collided with the barrier near to the M11 junction, according to a police spokesman.

The woman, in her 30s, was not injured.

There was an oil leakage from her car which caused the closure leading to tailbacks.
