M11 still shut for clean up work after collision

The M11 remains closed northbound between J10 Duxford and J8 Bishop's Stortford after a van and two cars collided earlier today, leaving one man dead.

Investigation work has been completed at the scene 10 miles after junction 8 near Saffron Walden, but the carriageway now needs to be cleared.

All traffic that was trapped on the motorway, has been released, but there are long delays in the area.

M11 closed northbound because of fatal crash

The M11 is closed while emergency services deal with a crash near the junction for Saffron Walden.

It happened just after 1.30pm and involved a white VW Transport van, a black Ford Focus and a silver VW Golf.

One man has died, three others are in hospital. The M11 northbound is closed at junction 8. Motorists are asked to find alternative routes and to avoid the area while important recovery and forensic investigation work takes place.

A lane of the south bound carriageway has also been closed.

The road closures will be in place throughout the rush hour. Essex Police and the Highways Agency are working together to free the trapped traffic and are urging people to try and use alternative routes.

Councillors want to bring in the new limits in a triangle between King's Lynn, Hunstanton and Sheringham, with 50 limits on 'B' roads and 40s on smaller roads. The pilot still needs to be approved by the Department for Transport. Limits on 'A' roads would remain unchanged.
