Boat falls from trailer on A12 near Colchester
A boat fell off a trailer leaving it beached on a major road in Essex.
The vessel crashed on to the northbound stretch of the A12 between Ardleigh and Dedham near Colchester just before 12:00 GMT.
The Shona Mae had come off the back of a four-wheeled trailer pulled by a grey car.
Essex Police coned off the affected carriageway to traffic. Essex Fire and Rescue Service said nobody was hurt.
Although the trailer flipped over, the boat came to a rest upright on its keel. One lane remains closed while the scene is cleared.
