An A14 slip-road has been closed by a 20 metre long oil spillage in west Suffolk.

Suffolk police received report of a broken down Mini Cooper in the Rougham slip-road of the westbound A14, near Bury St Edmunds, at around 10.50am.

A police spokesman said the car had left a pool of oil on the road, which is around 20 metres long.

Highways teams have been called to clear the spillage and the vehicle has already been removed.

The road will remain closed until the oil has been cleared.
