The Orwell Bridge has reopened as police investigate a car crash and a man’s body found at the bottom of the bridge.
The eastbound carriageway of the bridge was closed by Suffolk Constabulary after reports of a collision between a stationary car and a lorry at about 4.30am this morning, April 12.
No one was injured in the crash but the body of a man believed to be in his 50s was later found at the foot of the bridge.
Police investigating the circumstances around the incident are not treating the man’s death as suspicious.
The Felixstowe-bound stretch of the bridge has reopened one lane to allow traffic to ease but police remain on the bridge and drivers are still advised to avoid the area.
The closure is in place between junction 58 and junction 59.
The westbound carriageway remains open.
