Part of the A14 is set to close after a four vehicle crash in the eastbound carriageway, which resulted in an oil spill.

Police were called at around 8.35am to reports of a collision involving one van and three cars, near the Whitehouse Interchange. The crash originally closed both lanes.

Highways England has also been called to the scene due to an oil spill caused by the crash. 

One lane of the carriageway reopened just before 9.25am to allow the backlog of traffic to pass, but a spokesman for Suffolk police said the road will be closed again until the oil spill has been cleared. 

The ambulance service was called to the scene but only minor injuries were sustained.
