A car was found on fire in a lay-by on the A14.

When firefighters arrived at the scene, between junctions 52 at Claydon and 51 at Needham Market, they discovered the vehicle - described as a small car - burning in a lay-by.

Two crews from Ipswich and Needham Market were called to the scene, who quickly extinguished the fire after 20minutes.

Thankfully, no-one was injured during the fire and traffic was unaffected.

Neither the police nor ambulance service were called.
