Motorists have been warned to expect delays in Suffolk later this week when a large load travels through the county.

The load will contain a dump truck - measuring 5m wide, 26m long and nearly 5m high.

The dump truck is setting off from Quy Bridge in Cambridgeshire to Cliff Quay, Ipswich Docks. It is departing at 9am on Wednesday.

Because of the size of the load, which weighs 116,000kg, it will be escorted by police during its journey.

The dump truck will leave Cambridgeshire and head on to the A14, passing Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket before reaching the Copdock junction.
