A DRIVER arrested on suspicion of drink or drug driving after a smash on the A12 has been given police bail.
The 38-year-old from Hertfordshire was arrested after a 44 tonne articulated lorry carrying 27 tonnes of citrus fruits went out of control in the early hours of yesterday morning.
It meant the A12 was closed for 16 miles as motorists were directed on a 23-mile diversion along the A120, A131 and A130.
The man has been released on police bail until December 2.
