An abnormal load made its way along the A12 having been delayed for a day.

Motorists were told to expect delays as the load was escorted from A12 Essex border at Copdock northbound to Ferry Road, Bawdsey.

It is now completing a journey back to the Essex border “unladen but under escort until clear of the A12 roundabouts”.
