A stretch of the Ipswich-bound A12 has re-opened after a car crash left one vehicle in the opposite carriageway.

The accident, just before junction 24 at Kelvedon, happened around 2.30pm on Tuesday, September 24.

One vehicle is said to have hit the central reservation on the southbound carriageway and come to a stop in the opposite side of the road.

The carriageway was shut between junctions 23 and 24 as a result, with tailbacks stretching more than eight miles.

Residual delays are expected to remain for a short time.
