Highways England has been called in to repair a traffic barrier at the Copdock Interchange after a car crash earlier today damaged it and caused a lane of the A14 to close.

Suffolk police have closed a lane of the A14 eastbound a quarter of a mile before junction 55.

A barrier on the central reservation has been hit and part of it is protruding into lane two, meaning traffic has been cleared from the area as a precaution.

Highways England contractors are currently en route to repair the barrier but long delays back to Sproughton have formed on the dual carriageway.
