M11 still partly closed after a lorry overturned

Drivers have been advised to use alternative routes as the southbound M11 between J8 and J7 is still closed after a HGV overturned this morning.

The incident happened just before 7.30am and the Highways Agency is working hard with its contractors to reopen the carriageway as soon as it is safe to do so.

Recovery is already on scene but will take some time to remove the vehicle.

Drivers are advised to allow extra time or find an alternate route, with long delays in the area.

A fully signed diversion, following the hollow square symbol, is in place via the A120, A10 and A414.
