The Orwell Bridge has re-opened after a broken down tractor saw one lane closed for more than two hours.

The tractor broke down in the middle of the bridge around 5.50pm Friday evening, September 20.

Police were called to the scene, although a spokesman for the force said recovery for the vehicle could be a tricky task.

Traffic maps in the area had shown severe delays to the Copdock Interchange until the vehicle was eventually recovered at 8.26pm.
