Two further incidents have been reported on the Orwell Bridge tonight, after a motorbike broke down during rush hour earlier today.

Police were called following concerns for a man's safety at around 6.10pm, which caused officers to close the road for a short time, but a spokeswoman said this incident has now been dealt with.

Then, half an hour later at 6.39pm, police were called to the bridge again to reports that a lorry had broken down on the eastbound carriageway.

Officers were called to come back to the bridge to deal with the breakdown but said by the time they got there the lorry had managed to restart and was gone.

The two incidents follow a motorcycle breakdown earlier this afternoon which caused heavy traffic to come to a standstill.
