Police and firefighters were sent to the scene of a lorry fire this afternoon which forced a main road in north Suffolk to close.
Traffic officers and two fire crews from Bury St Edmunds were sent to the blaze on the A134 at Ingham at around 11.50am.
Tyres on the lorry, which is believed to have been carrying containers of tomato juice, were well alight and tackled by fire crews at the scene.
The blaze is now out and firefighters called a stop to the incident at 12.40pm.
Shortly after 1.40pm, Suffolk police tweeted: “A134 at Ingham is now open northbound after lorry fire.
