The major road has been closed between J37, near Newmarket, and J39, near Kentford.

The westbound carriageway has one lane closed between J37 and J38 with sandbags on the road to prevent losing further lanes.

A spokesman for National Highways said: "Extensive investigations continue alongside discussions with Anglian Water to find the source of the flooding which is also affecting non-National Highways roads in the area, suggesting a more wide spread issue."

They have also advised drivers to plan ahead if they are travelling on the A14, with drivers seeing delays of up to 90 minutes from the disruption.

An official diversion has been put in place with drivers told to exit the A14 eastbound at J37 and join the A142 into Newmarket.
