The A14 has now reopened following disruption caused by a broken down lorry between two major junctions.

Officers were forced to close the busy road after a vehicle broke down heading westbound between Wherstead (junction 56) and Copdock (junction 55).

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said the lorry was believed to be straddling two lanes, causing a near total blockage.

Traffic was also moving slowly in the eastbound direction, towards Ipswich, due to people ‘rubber-necking’.

Police have confirmed the road is now fully reopened and traffic should be flowing normally.
