A car was left stranded on the side of the A14 after losing a wheel while driving over the Orwell Bridge.

Suffolk police were called to the incident shortly after 2.10pm today.

A driver had contacted the emergency services after losing a wheel off their VW Golf while driving along the eastbound carriageway between junction 56 at Wherstead and junction 57 at Nacton.

The car was parked shortly before the Nacton turn-off and vehicles were queuing back over the bridge.

Recovery was been called and the car was removed a short time later.
