There is severe disruption on the A12 this morning, with stop-start traffic in the Witham bypass.

Police say cows managed to get onto the road and were hit by a number of vehicles.

The incident happened early this morning, and traffic was diverted through the centre of Witham.

It is understood some people have suffered minor injuries as a result of the collisions.

UPDATE: the road has reopened to large delays stretching between Stanway and Kelvedon, with heavy traffic on the A120 as drivers take alternative routes.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.
