Police have reopened a road closed following a fatal collision in Ipswich this morning.

The crash happened on the A137 Wherstead Road shortly before 7.20am.

Police have since confirmed that a woman died at the scene of the collision.

The road was closed between the roundabouts of junction 56 on the A14 and the roundabout for The Strand.

The crash involved two vehicles.

Police said the slip round from the A14, leading onto the A137 Wherstead Road towards Ipswich, had also been closed to traffic.

The road closure caused congestion leading up to the eastbound A14 junction 56 exit slip road, both ways on A137 to Tattingstone and on the B1456 to Freston.

The East of England Ambulance Service and Suffolk Fire and Rescue service were also called to the scene.

The road reopened just before 3pm.
