TRAFFIC on the A140 was held up during rush hour after an HGV broke down.

The vehicle stopped on the Ipswich-bound carriageway at Mendlesham at around 7.30am yesterday.

Traffic was jammed back to Brockford before the vehicle was recovered at 8.20am.

The broken down HGV was then taken to the nearest lay-by so mechanics could work on it.
