A road barrier that was put in place in a residential street in Ipswich has been knocked over. 

The barrier which was put in place in Cavendish Street was knocked over on Thursday morning. 

In May last year, homeowners in Gladstone Road and Devonshire Road in Ipswich were calling for Cavendish Street to be shut at White Elm Street so drivers coming from the Foxhall Road direction couldn't cut through to the waterfront.

Suffolk County Council and Suffolk police have been approached for a comment.
