A car rolled onto its side on a country lane being used as a diversion route after a burst water main closed a Suffolk road.

The car involved has flipped and landed on its side on the grass verge alongside the road.

According to the AA route planner traffic map, traffic is coping well.

Essex Police have been approached for comment. There are not believed to be any injuries.

The road is currently being used as a diversion route after a burst water pipe closed the A134 between Leavenheath and St Matthew's Church.
