A driver, stuck on her way to work, said: "There are so many ambulances and police cars. At least five ambulances have driven past.

"Police are letting cars back up and turn around.

"The road has also been shut off now at the Cliffsend roundabout.

"There are no cars coming the other way so it looks like the whole road had been closed."
