An emergency closure has been installed in a road on the outskirts of a west Suffolk town due to flooding. 

Snailwell Road, in Newmarket, has been shut on Monday due to flooding under a railway bridge. 

Barriers are blocking either end of the floods, preventing drivers from getting through. 

It comes amid long delays in Newmarket due to lane closures on the A14.

A spokesman for Suffolk Highways said: "We have tankers working to clear the standing water as we speak and hope to have the road reopened as soon as possible.

"We will issue an update on our social media pages once the road is clear and has been reopened."
