The A14 Orwell Bridge has fully opened to traffic after a three-vehicle crash caused heavy tailbacks earlier this evening.

Police were called to the scene of the collision on the eastbound carriageway at around 6pm today, Wednesday, November 7.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said the crash involved a Mini, a motorcycle and a lorry.

She said: “The car is facing the wrong way so looks like it has spun in the road.

“The rider of the bike is thought to be up and moving.”

She added the ambulance service had also been called to the scene of the crash although it is not believed there are any serious injuries.

The road was cleared and fully reopened to traffic at around 7.40pm.

A main road into Ipswich has been ranked in the top 10 ‘riskiest roads’ in the east of England by a road safety charity.

A man has been arrested after police intercepted a train and seized a knife hidden in a bag.

If you are a parent of a three or four year old you will have received a letter from Suffolk County Council about school places this week. But what do you do next?

Fashion shows, running market stalls, and sponsored runs are just a few of the things an Ipswich training provider did to raise money for charity.
