Motorists faced delays on the Suffolk and Essex border earlier following a level crossing failure.

The A137 in Manningtree was blocked in both directions between the B1352 Station Road and B1070 Bergholt Road junctions at 11.50pm.

A Network Rail spokesman said engineers had resolved the problem by 1.20pm.

Both lanes reopened soon after, he added.
