A lorry that caused the closure of one lane of the A14 has been recovered following earlier traffic disruption.

It happened earlier this evening between Wherstead and Copdock, near to junctions 55 and 56.

The outside lane of the dual carriageway was closed by Suffolk police.

The AA has warned drivers to expect delays, with their traffic map showing heavy traffic as far as Nacton Village and reporting delays of up to 16 minutes.
