A stretch of the A143 connecting Haverhill to Bury St Edmunds has reopened after a tree fell adjacent to the road during high winds.

Crews from Suffolk Highways were called to the A143 last night (Tuesday, October 20) after a large tree fell adjacent to the carriageway.

They were unable to complete works last night returned this morning to clear the scene.

The road was closed between the B1061 junction (Keddington) and Greys Lane (Barnardiston).

A Suffolk Highways spokesman has since confirmed the road was reopened around 11am.

A yellow weather warning remains in place across Suffolk until 5pm.
