One lane of the A14 has been closed after a four vehicle crash

The A14 was closed just outside Ipswich in both directions after a four-vehicle crash has left two people trapped in a car.

Emergency services were called to the crash near the Seven Hills interchange at Nacton at about 4.20pm on Wednesday December 8.

A spokesman for Suffolk police initially said: "Two people are currently trapped in the vehicle that is on its roof. 

"The eastbound carriageway and the slip road at Nacton has been closed.

"The injuries are not thought to be life-changing or life-threatening."

National Highways later said the road was closed in both directions.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service were also on the scene, and said just before 5pm that one person had been freed, while work to rescue a second was ongoing.
