Afternoon travel: Latest on roads and rail

SUFFOLK: No major problems have been reported on the roads approaching rush hour, though adverse weather conditions led to the launch of Operation Stack this afternoon.

The old A45, Felixstowe Road, in Levington was closed both ways, shortly after 3pm, as winds heightened.

Anyone travelling westbound on the A14 also faced earlier delays caused by a broken down car between Nacton Interchange and Wherstead Interchange.

Rail users faced long delays this morning due to overunning engineering works. Some passengers leaving Ipswich reached London more than an hour late.

The delays, though not as severe, continued into the afternoon and commuters may face hold-ups on their journeys home.
