A section of the A14 near Bury St Edmunds is closed to traffic after two vans were involved in a collision.

A white Ford Transit Van towing a trailer ended up on top of another trailer being towed by a white Mercedes-Benz Panel Van in front of it westbound between junction 43 and 44 at around 9.40pm today, a Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said.

No serious injuries were reported at the scene.

The stretch of the dual carriageway between the two junctions has been closed westbound and police are diverting traffic.

Police are awaiting the arrival of the Highways Agency to remove the vehicles and repair damage sustained to the central reservation.
