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.

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.

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