ESSEX Police are appealing for witnesses following a fatal collision on the M11 this morning. 

Officers were called to Junction 8 of the M11 shortly before 6am this morning (28 April) following a single vehicle collision. 

Emergency services attended and the road was quickly closed. 

Despite best efforts of paramedics on the scene, a woman in her 40s sadly died at the scene. 

Her family have been made aware. 

A 42-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving and remains in custody. 

The northbound has since been re-opened and the southbound remains closed to allow for the recovery of the vehicle involved. We thank road users for their patience.
