TRAFFIC chaos gripped Suffolk's roads once again today after an overturned lorry jammed the A14 near Claydon.

Less than a week after the town was brought to a halt when the Orwell Bridge was closed following a smash, motorists faced another day of rush-hour road chaos.

Queues stretching back more than ten miles built up after the lorry spilt its load on the Stowmarket-bound carriageway at around 6.40am.

The driver had a lucky escape, but the road was closed for several hours while police organised the recovery of the truck and 40ft trailer.
