The A14 westbound has re-opened between Elmswell and Rougham after a “serious crash” closed it for more than eight hours.

Police were called at 0.53am to the single-vehicle crash just before junction 45 at Rougham.

The police spokesman could not yet comment on injuries, but said more information would be available soon.

A volunteer doctor from the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) emergency medical charity also attended the scene to support the East of England Ambulance Service.

A spokesman for SARS said they could provide no further information at this time.
