Motorists are being warned of severe delays following a crash and car fire on the A12.

Police were called shortly before 12.45pm on Saturday afternoon with reports of a two vehicle crash and car fire on the major road.

Footage shared on social media shows smoke billowing from a car on the northbound carriageway between junction 30 (Stratford St Mary) and junction 31 (East Bergholt).

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police confirmed one lane is closed in each direction while crews work to clear the scene.

The northbound carriageway was initially completely shut, but one lane has since been reopened.
