Police are appealing for the driver of a lorry to come forward following a crash in the middle of the Orwell Bridge.

The collision happened just before 10.50am on Tuesday, on the westbound carriageway of the A14.

Police were called to reports of a lorry colliding with a car in the middle of the Orwell Bridge. The car was then forced to veer towards the side of the road, said a spokeswoman for the constabulary.

The driver of the car – a blue Mazda – was unharmed in the crash.

An initial rolling road block was replaced by a full lane closure while recovery of the damaged car took place. The lane was reopened just after 11am.
