A long stretch of the A14 near Claydon was completely closed this afternoon after a van and trailer rolled over blocking the eastbound carriageway.

Suffolk police were called to the scene just past the A14 eastbound on-slip at Claydon, junction 52, at around 12.50pm today, Thursday, June 22.

The vehicle and trailer were cleared from the road by 3.30pm, but the crash has caused long, residual delays in the area.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Constabulary said no one was reported to have been injured during the collision, which involved a long wheelbase Mercedes.

According to the AA, tailbacks stretched all the way to Needham Market with delays of up to 35 minutes.
