The collision between an Audi, a Ford Focus and an articulated lorry on the A14 eastbound, close to junction 49 to Haughley, meant that rush-hour drivers endured long delays this evening.

No drivers or passengers were trapped in the vehicles and no one is known to have suffered serious injuries at this point.

One lane was open as police work to clear the road of debris, with heavy traffic stretching past junctions 47 and 49, between Tostock and the Tot Hill roundabouts.
