There were long queues on the A14 over the Orwell Bridge this afternoon due to a broken down vehicle.

A large lorry lost one of its wheels while travelling in lane one of the eastbound carriageway just before 12noon today.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Constabulary said no one was injured during the incident.

The road was clear by 1pm.

Suffolk’s road policing team issued a warning to drivers via Twitter.

Traffic was reported to be tailing back to Wherstead while the lorry blocked the carriageway.
