A stretch of the A14 near Ipswich has re-opened in both directions following a police incident.

The incident had seen the major road closed between junctions 58 at Seven Hills and 57 at Nacton while officers remained on scene.

Motorists had been advised to avoid the area.

After nearly an hour of closure, Highways England confirmed the road has re-opened in both directions while warning drivers to drive with extreme caution in the event of any breakdowns.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said the incident did not involve the Orwell Bridge, but was unable to give more information.
