Both lanes in the westbound direction of the A14 near Stowmarket have reopened following a crash where a vehicle ended up on its roof. 

Emergency services were called to the crash in the westbound carriageway near Haughley just before 1.30pm today.

The westbound carriageway was closed for about an hour before one lane reopened, while the second lane was opened about three hours later.

A police spokesman said that both the eastbound and westbound carriageway were initially closed but the eastbound road has since reopened. 

A spokesman for Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service previously said: "Crews are currently assisting other emergency services partners rescue one person from their vehicle which is currently on its roof."

The East of England Ambulance Service has been approached for a comment. 

A Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) spokesman said a volunteer team was at the scene.
