The Orwell Bridge has been cleared after a rush-hour collision caused delays for commuters this morning.

Suffolk Constabulary received reports of a two vehicle crash on the top of the bridge in the westbound carriageway of the A14 shortly after 8am.

A woman in one of the vehicles was reported to have been suffering with chest pains and an ambulance was called.

Police spokesman said the two cars - a silver Peugeot 206 and a black Ford Fiesta - were cleared to a lay-by at about 8.45am.

An ambulance spokesman later confirmed two people involved in the collision were taken to Ipswich Hospital with minor injuries.
