EVENING TRAVEL UPDATE: Latest on the roads

TRAFFIC is moving smoothly on Suffolk’s roads approaching rush hour this evening.

Trains are also running on time across the county, with few mainline delays to and from London.

In the last hour, traffic has began to ease on the westbound carriageway of the A14 after a lane was blocked by a broken down lorry.

Traffic was restricted for 30 minutes from around 3pm between the Bury eastern and central interchange.

Outside Suffolk, there were hold-ups in Thetford where an earlier accident caused slow traffic in both directions of the A11.
