A horsebox carrying a horse has been struck by concrete that was thrown on the A14 near Newmarket.

The incident happened at about 3.45pm on Saturday on the westbound carriageway near junction 38, Suffolk police said.

An Iveco horsebox was struck by a large piece of concrete as it passed under an overbridge on the Suffolk road, causing significant damage.

Police believe that the concrete had been thrown deliberately.

A spokesperson also said that there was one horse in the horsebox at the time of the incident.

They would also like any motorists with dashcams in their vehicle to review the footage.
