DRIVERS face hold-ups on the A14after accidents led to lane closures and blockages.

A lane of the westbound carriageway was closed at junction 40 for Higham this morning because of an overturned car.

Meanwhile, the eastbound carriageway was also blocked about half a mile east of the Orwell Bridge, near junction 57 for the Nacton interchange, following a single vehicle collision. Paramedics and firefighters have been called to the scene just before 10.15am.

Fire crews from Ipswich East and Princes Street helped release two people from the wreckage. A police spokesman said there were no serious injuries.

Hazardous driving conditions have been reported across the county this morning because of ice and overnight snowfall. Police said there had been several minor crashes.
