Commuters are facing severe delays on the A14 after a lorry crash seriously damaged safety barriers, partially closing the eastbound carriageway.

The incident happened yesterday evening (July 28) after a lorry crashed off the road through the barrier and plunged onto a roundabout below.

The eastbound carriageway had been closed for hours while investigations took place but one lane has now reopened.

The inside lane is still closed however, for repairs to be made to the barrier.

Suffolk police have also said that the road may need to be closed over night for further work to take place.
