A section of the A14 has reopened near Newmarket after a collision involving a car and a caravan earlier today.

Suffolk police said it had received reports of an accident near Newmarket, between junctions 37 and 38, at around 12.10pm this afternoon.

A spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said the accident involved a car and caravan. The caravan is said to have collided with the central reservation and ended up on its side.

The East of England Ambulance Service has attended to reports a person suffered minor injuries in the crash.

Highways England tweeted soon after the accident happened that the A14 was blocked in the eastbound carriageway. However, Suffolk police later confirmed that the road appeared to be passable, though one lane has been closed.

A recovery vehicle arrived to remove the car and caravan at around 1.15pm.

The road had reopened by 1.50pm, a spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said in an update.
