Rush-hour motorists faced delays this morning after a lorry stalled on the A14 near Newmarket.

One lane closed on the A14 westbound between Junction 39 (B1506/Kentford) and Junction 38 (A11) due to the stalled large goods vehicle, which was first reported around 6.40am.

The incident caused five-mile tailbacks on the A14 during the morning rush-hour.

Highways England tweeted at 9.25am that the incident had been cleared and the carriageway was fully reopened.
