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’.
