Major traffic builds ahead of Christmas Fayre
Stretches of slow moving and queuing traffic is building around Bury St Edmunds as it prepares for the Christmas Fayre.
Yesterday traffic clogged up roads across East Anglia as people flooded into the market town for the start of the four-day extravaganza.
Last night fireworks illuminated skies at the event, but this morning it is back to the traffic grind as the second day of the Christmas Fayre attracts thousands of people.
Slow moving traffic is stretching along the westbound A14 at junctions 44 and 43 near Bury St Edmunds.
Queues are also building along the loop of the A134 with cars reduced to speeds of 20mph.
