Orwell Bridge: Broken down lorry causes long delays for motorists

HUNDREDS of motorists were left facing lengthy delays this morning after a lorry broke down on top of the Orwell Bridge.

All drivers travelling on the westbound carriageway were left in tailbacks after the incident left one lane blocked.

Police are still on scene, managing the traffic, while recovery is also being arranged.

A police spokesman said the incident was causing problems.

The crash has caused lengthy tailbacks.

The motorists involved are not thought to have been seriously hurt.
