UPDATE: Maldon: Traffic chaos as lorry breaks down carrying wind turbine
A lorry carrying part of a wind turbine has broken down, causing huge traffic disruptions.
Police are now urging motorists to avoid the Fambridge Road area until 5.30pm today when the load will be recovered.
Two similiar lorries are currently on the A12 and will come through the same area.
Motorists are currently being diverted to Purleigh and Mundon to avoid the lorry, which has broken down outside the Round Bush pub.
The lorry's load is destined for the wind farm at Bradwell, which is undergoing construction.
A police spokesperson said: "While diversions are in place, we are asking people to be patient."
More deliveries are expected to be made tomorrow and Friday between 10am and 3pm.
