Christmas trees blocked a major road after a trailer carrying the load overturned, police said.

A Land Rover Discovery's trailer overturned on the A12 near Colchester as the car clipped the central barrier, splaying its load of trees "all over the carriageway".

The driver, a 66-year-old man from Woodbridge, Suffolk, was not injured in the accident, which took place around 11.25am just past junction 27 on the northbound stretch of the road.

Essex Police attended the scene and said: "The road has now been cleared and the vehicles recovered."
