A ROLLING road block was put in place on the A12 after an elderly man with a walking stick got stuck on the central reservation.

The incident took place between Kelvedon South and Kelvedon North at about 4.40pm today.

A spokesman for Essex Police said several calls were received about a man with a hub cap between the carriageways.

It is not known if one came off his car or he was attempting to clear the road when he became stuck, although there was no sign of a car.
