Crash has been cleared but “long delays” remain in the area, stretching back to the Copdock Interchange.

Delays remain this afternoon after a car and a lorry were reportedly involved in the collision on the A14 eastbound carriageway near the Nacton Interchange just after 2pm this afternoon.

A Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said that they were called at around 2.05pm to reports of a collision at the Nacton junction on the A14.

The accident took place on the exit off-slip near Ransomes Europark.

Lane one had been closed whilst the incident was dealt with and Suffolk police had used a rolling road block to control traffic.

According to Highways England, the collision involved a HGV and a car. It reported that the car had been on its side and had to be righted.

It added on Twitter: “All lanes open and collision cleared on the #A14 eastbound between J56 and J57 #Suffolk. Recovery complete. Delays remain however back to J55 currently but starting to ease steadily.”

Firefighters from Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service and medics from East of England Ambulance Service Trust were also called to the scene.

A spokesperson for the ambulance service said; “We were called at 2.11pm today to a road traffic collision at the Nacton interchange, A14, Nacton.
