A cyclist has suffered life-threatening injuries in a crash which closed a major route in a seaside resort for several hours.

Officers were called to the A127, close to the Victoria Avenue roundabout, in Southend, shortly after 14:00 BST.

The road was closed at the junction with Priory Crescent and Manners Way.

The force appealed for anyone who was in the area at the time and saw the collision, or has dashcam footage, to contact officers.
