The incident happened just after 5pm today between the junctions for Seven Hills and Trimley St Martin.

One lane had to be closed while recovery work took place. It was reported that this has led to queueing traffic.

Firefighters from Ipswich and Felixstowe were sent to the scene and one person had to be cut out of their vehicle.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said nobody suffered any major injuries in the collision.
