Two lorries crashing on the A14 has created a mile-long tailback towards Felixstowe.

Suffolk police were called around 4.20pm to reports of an incident involving two lorries heading towards the port of Felixstowe that had collided just before the Dock Spur roundabout.

There are officers attending the scene but the road is currently closed - police on the scene expect the road to reopen at 7pm.

The drivers of both vehicles are thought to be unharmed and no other vehicles were involved, but drivers are advised to avoid the road if possible.
