The accident happened on the slip road approaching the westbound carriageway at junction 44, the Bury Eastern Interchange at around 6.25am.

Suffolk police have issued a warning to all motorists to take care in the dangerous conditions.

A spokeswoman for the force said: “There was a tree which came down in the high winds and a car hit the tree.

“The driver suffered a minor leg injury and was taken to hospital for a check up.

“Recovery crews and highways are en route to clear the road so it shouldn’t be blocked for much longer.

“There is a weather warning out concerning high winds and heavy rain, until about 1pm today.

“We would urge drivers to take care on the roads, slow dow and drive to the conditions.”
