A lorry carrying a cargo of mattresses and bed frames has shed its load causing delays for drivers on the A14 in Suffolk.

Suffolk police received reports of an accident on the westbound carriageway near Copdock at around 9.25am.

A police spokesman said the lorry shed its load of mattresses and bed frames, which had been left in the carriageway.

The obstructions were removed soon after but it took a while longer to get the lorry out of the carriageway.

By 10am, however, the road was completely clear, police said.

A spokesman added that there was some ongoing congestion in the area, following the accident.
