The A14 Orwell Bridge has fully opened to traffic after a three-vehicle crash caused heavy tailbacks earlier this evening.

Police were called to the scene of the collision on the eastbound carriageway at around 6pm today, Wednesday, November 7.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said the crash involved a Mini, a motorcycle and a lorry.

She said: “The car is facing the wrong way so looks like it has spun in the road.

“The rider of the bike is thought to be up and moving.”
