A car has crashed with a pile of waste that fell from a lorry onto the A12.

The lorry, heading southbound from Ipswich towards Colchester, is said to have shed its load around 4.40pm today near Capel St Mary.

The load, which a police spokesman described as "waste materials", spread across the carriageway, causing a collision with a passing car.

Police were called to the scene to aid in the clean up of the rubbish, with the road cleared shortly before 5.15pm.

Thankfully, the driver of the car is not said to have suffered any injuries.

Traffic maps provided by the AA show traffic is currently coping well in the area, although all carriageways around the Copdock Interchange are experiencing rush hour delays.
