Part of the A13 is blocked after a crash this morning. 

Emergency services are reportedly on the scene of the crash at the Five Bells Interchange. 

The accident took place on the westbound carriageway, near to the junction with the A176, at roughly 7am this morning. 

Combined with traffic from the crash, there is also a road closure in place on the A13 for roadworks to take place. 

The road is shut in the westbound direction from the roundabout with the A130 to the A132 junction at South Mayne and the Pitsea Flyover.
