Police have reopened the A12 at Thorington.

Two large trees fell on to the A12 in North Suffolk, causing major delays for motorists.

Police said the road, near Thorington, was completely blocked by the trees, which both measure about 25ft.

A spokeswoman said the force was called just before 1pm and that a Land Rover collided with the trees, but the driver is not thought to have suffered any serious injuries.

Highways workers are currently on the scene trying to remove the trees and diversions have been put in place.

Meanwhile, a tree also fell in Spring Road, Ipswich, near the junction with St John’s Road. The tree has now been moved.
