The A11 at Barton Mills has been closed in both directions after a power cable came down.

Suffolk police were called at 10.50am to the stretch of road near the Fiveways roundabout.

A police spokeswoman said power cables on the southbound carriageway had fallen, and had caused a blockage to the road in both directions.

Officers have closed the road in both directions while work is underway.
