CHAOS hit the roads in Felixstowe today when yet another lorry overturned at the notorious dock spur roundabout.

The container lorry fell on to its side as it negotiated the roundabout shortly after 5pm.

Firefighters from Felixstowe and Princes Street, Ipswich, had to release the driver who was trapped by the vehicle's steering wheel.

He was taken to hospital but was not believed to be seriously injured.

The accident left part of the road blocked at one of the busiest times of the day, as motorists made their way home.

Queues of traffic built up on the A14 and through the Trimley villages as people tried to find alternate routes home.
