Ipswich: Orwell Bridge blocked by lorry
A blow-out caused traffic trouble for several hours on the Orwell Bridge yesterday.
Suffolk police were called at 4.30pm by a motorist reporting a blue flatbed vehicle was stationary and traffic was building up behind it on the bridge south of Ipswich.
The Highways Agency put up a road closure sign and the westbound road was temporarily closed for recovery.
The delays lasted for three hours and tailbacks stretched back miles.
