The Orwell Bridge has reopened after it was closed by police due to an incident.

Police were called to the A14 around 1.30pm after receiving reports concerning the welfare of a person seen on the bridge.

Officers performed a rolling road block and closed the bridge in both directions around 1.36pm.

They later reopened the bridge shortly before 2.15pm.

A police spokeswoman said the person is now in the care of the ambulance service.
