A triple lorry crash on the A14 near Bury St Edmunds is causing delays for motorists.


No injuries have been reported in the collision westbound close to the Rougham turn-off (junction 45), a Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said.

The incident took place at 3.05pm today.

A stretch of the inside lane westbound is partially blocked. The outside lane has been unaffected and is open to traffic.

An East of England Ambulance Service spokesman said paramedics were not called to the incident.

Debris needed to be cleared before the stretch of the dual carriageway had fully reopened to traffic by 7pm.
