A lane of the A11 southbound at Red Lodge remains closed this morning after a car crashed through barriers and onto the A14 below.

The incident happened last night close to junction 38.

Highways England have reported that a lane will remain closed while repair work is carried out.

Suffolk and Cambridgeshire police closed both carriageways last night while a driver was removed from the vehicle, they have since been taken to hospital.
