Severe traffic delays on the A14 have been caused by a four-vehicle crash.

The road is partially blocked on the eastbound carriageway in Wherstead, just past junction 55 for the Copdock Interchange.

The incident happened around 7.50am involving a lorry, a van and two cars.

A spokesman from Suffolk police confirmed that there had been no serious injuries.

Lane one of the eastbound carriageway is closed while the vehicles are recovered, with motorists advised to expect delays to their journey.

A tyre blowout on a vehicle on the westbound carriageway of the A14 near Claydon is also causing delays in the area.

Travel delays are affecting motorists across the county, particularly along the A14 as far as west Suffolk and on routes to Ipswich.
