An HGV broke down on the westbound off slip of the A14 at junction 56 in Wherstead.

Suffolk police received a call at 7.21am to say that the vehicle had broken down.

Officers expected traffic to build up in the area as rush hour got busier.

There were some delays on the westbound carriageway once the incident site had been cordoned off, police said.
