Emergency services also worked to clear up fuel which had spilled onto the road as a result of the crash.

Diversions were put in place through Brandon.

The crash happened on the same stretch of the A11 which is currently the focus of a public inquiry into whether it should be turned into a dual carriageway.

If given the go-ahead, the nine-mile stretch between Thetford and the Fiveways Barton Mills roundabout would be widened under plans put forward by the Highways Agency.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Suffolk police on 01473 613500.
