A broken down lorry blocking an on-ramp to the A14 near Ipswich has now been cleared.

The lorry was blocking the eastbound entry slip road from J55 at the Copdock roundabout, which led to traffic chaos.

According to the AA Traffic Map, the broken down vehicle caused queues as far back as junction 56 at Wherstead in the eastbound direction and junction 53 at Whitehouse in the westbound.
