Suffolk Constabulary officers were called at 12.25pm on Wednesday to reports that a container lorry had overturned on the A14 eastbound just after the Dock Spur roundabout.

The incident left both lanes on the eastbound carriageway blocked for nearly three and a half hours as emergency services worked at the scene.

The driver – a man in his 40s – was conscious and breathing, but had suffered cuts and bruises.

He was taken to Ipswich Hospital by ambulance for further care.

A crane was required to right the overturned vehicle.
