A spillage of raw meat is causing tailbacks on the two major roads at the Copdock roundabout.
More than 10 trays of the raw meat, which appear to include raw chicken and burgers, fell onto lane one of the carriageway at around 10.55am this morning (Thursday, April 11).
It is currently unknown what caused the trays to fall from the vehicle.
The spillage has been causing delays of up to one mile on both the A12 and A14 in both directions.
Highways England has been called to the scene to clear the obstruction, although the roads and roundabout remain open.
