Motorists in Suffolk are facing a series of delays this morning following a number of incidents.

Traffic is currently slow in Icklingham after a motorcyclist came off his bike in The Street just after 8am today.

It is not believed the rider has suffered any serious injuries but they were complaining of a hip injury.

One lane of the A12 northbound carriageway near East Bergholt was also blocked this morning due to a collision on the road.

Traffic is currently moving slowly through the area.

The A144 near Bungay is also currently blocked as a result of a car turning on to its roof and blocking the road.

Traffic was brought to a standstill after the incident, which happened at 7.18am, and traffic is currently moving slowly in the area.
