Drivers were warned earlier today that a large animal had been spotted on the A14 heading westbound.

Suffolk police received the call shortly before 7pm after reports of what was believed to be a large animal on the loose on the A14.

A spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said: "We received a call that a large animal was seen somewhere on the A14 westbound."

However, the police have been on the scene and have said that there is no evidence of the animal being there anymore.

They are also still unclear on what type of animal it was and are now saying the road is safe to drive on.

Three other incidents have occurred on the A14 this evening with drivers reporting "chaos" on the Orwell Bridge.
