The Orwell Bridge was closed for around 15 minutes on Friday evening as police were called to deal with an incident.

Suffolk Constabulary said the bridge briefly closed at 6.18pm, but has now reopened both ways.

However, the closure has caused some congestion on the A14 although this is expected to clear in due course.

Police said a man involved in the incident was now in their care.
