The A14 westbound near the Orwell Bridge was closed for a short while after a car crashed into a deer.

The road was closed at junction 58, at Nacton, shortly before 5pm on Tuesday as emergency services clear the carriageway, Suffolk police said.

According to the AA traffic map, drivers queued as far back as Levington, between Ipswich and Felixstowe.

Traffic also built up on the eastbound carriageway ahead of rush hour, but a police spokesman confirmed this has been cleared.
