A manhole cover on the A12 northbound has been split forcing a lane to be closed while work is undertaken.

Suffolk police say they were called to the road at around 8.20am this morning.

The split manhole cover is around 200 yards from the off slip road at Capel, just before the Esso garage.

Police say Suffolk Highways are aware and one lane heading northbound towards Ipswich remains closed for now.

The closure is causing queuing traffic from Holton St Mary back to junction 30 with Stratford St Mary and Dedham on the A12.
