A14 update: one lane reopens

ONE lane of traffic is now moving again on the A14 near Bury St Edmunds after a crash caused chaos today.

A LANE of the A14 is set to be closed for the rest of the day following a crash today in which two lorries collided.

Both carriageways of the A14 were blocked at Rougham, near Bury St Edmunds following the accident which happened shortly after 8am.

After the two drivers were taken to hospital, traffic was allowed to move slowly past the scene but both lanes were once again closed while recovery of the vehicles took place.

A police spokeswoman said lane two of the Cambridge bound carriageway would remain the rest of the day.

The two drivers were taken to West Suffolk Hospital for treatment.

Their injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
