The A14 from Felixstowe to Ipswich has reopened eight hours after a lorry overturned on the westbound carriageway.

The driver of the HGV, which had left the carriageway and crashed into roadside trees, was freed from the vehicle by firefighters.

Motorists are being advised to take a diversion route off junction 59 through Trimley St Martin and Levington to reach the Seven Hills roundabout.

The road reopened at about 2pm.
