There are delays on the A14 westbound this morning after a lorry broke down in the offslip at Copdock.

Officers were called to the lorry at around 6.50am.

Lane 1 of the offslip to the roundabout with the A12 northbound is currently closed while the lorry is dealt with.

Congestion is thought to be back towards J56 at Wherstead Road.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said that repair work on the vehicle was not expected to be completed until after the rush hour causing significant delays.

The lorry has since been recovered but has left fuel on the road.
