A JACKKNIFED lorry caused traffic chaos on the A14 today.

The lorry blocked the inside lane of the Ipswich-bound carriageway of the road, two miles before the junction with the A140.

The accident at about 2.20pm also spilt gravel across the road.

Recovery of the vehicle started at about 3.45pm, blocking both lanes of the affected carriageway, but Suffolk police said the road would hopefully be completely reopened by about 4.30pm.
