Suffolk Constabulary received reports about 11.10am of a crash close to junction 57 of the A14 at Nacton.

When officers arrived at the scene they found a lorry and a Fiat 500 had collided and were blocking the eastbound carriageway.

The crash caused miles of traffic on the road, stretching past junction 56 to Wherstead and towards the Copdock Interchange.

No one was injured as a result of the collision and police have now moved the lorry involved to the side of the road.
