A lorry which broke down at the Copdock roundabout has been causing traffic delays on the A12 and A14 this morning.

One lane of the southbound carriageway on the roundabout, where the A12 meets the A14, was partially blocked by the broken down tanker lorry.

Police say traffic is naturally slow following the incident, but the lorry has since been recovered and the road is now fully open.

At the time of the incident, Highways England tweeted: "#A14 Junction 55 Roundabout. Tanker broken down in Lane 1. Police are on scene fending off at this time."

The stalled lorry is continuing to cause delays back to London Road in Ipswich and on the northbound junction of the A12 from Capel St Mary.

There are also traffic delays in Ipswich town centre due to the temporary traffic lights at Hadleigh Road and the closure of Belstead Road.
