The incident happened in Dock Spur Road, near Morrisons, at about 8.20pm yesterday.

Drivers travelling to the Port of Felixstowe were advised to use Dock Gate One as a result, because Dock Gate Two was blocked in both directions.

As well as recovery for the vehicle, the Environment Agency was also called because of a diesel spill.

The lorry, which had a 20ft container on the back, was recovered at 11pm and the road re-opened at 1.50am today.

Nobody was injured in the incident.
