Motorists are being warned to expect heavy traffic after officers were forced to close the A14 due to a broken down lorry.
Police were called at 8.15am on Monday morning with reports of a broken down lorry between Wherstead and Copdock.
The road is currently closed heading westbound from Wherstead (junction 56), while officers work to recover the vehicle.
A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said the lorry is believed to be straddling two lanes, causing a near total blockage.
Traffic is also moving slowly in the eastbound direction, towards Ipswich, due to people ‘rubber-necking’.
