Huge delays are being reported this morning after blocked drains caused more misery on yet another of Suffolk’s biggest road, the A12.

Diversions are now on place on the A12 southbound near Bredfield as a result of the blocked drains.

Long delays are being reported in the area as a result of the diversion.

Suffolk Highways have been called to the scene to deal with the drain but said that it could take several hours to re-open fully.

"Thank you all for your patience whilst our teams carry out their work," said Suffolk Highways on Twitter.
