A stretch of the A14 that was closed for more than two hours following a serious crash has now re-opened.

The road had been closed between junctions 41 and 42 earlier on Sunday afternoon following a serious two vehicle crash that happened shortly after 4pm.

Both eastbound lanes between Risby and Westley, just outside of Bury St Edmunds, were affected as emergency services were on scene.

Police had cleared the scene of wreckage and were preparing to re-open the road by 7.30pm.
