Traffic has cleared on the A14 after a lorry broke down on the Orwell Bridge.

Police were called to the eastbound carriageway shortly before 10.20am to reports that a lorry had broken down on the bridge.

A police spokeswoman said a recovery vehicle from Bury St Edmunds was called.

The broken down lorry was recovered before 12.30pm.

The force had also received reports of a broken down van on the same carriageway, which led to a rolling road block.

The spokeswoman added however the van was not found.
