The A14 in Suffolk has now reopened after a crash that left a classic car flipped on its roof.

The collision closed both lanes of the westbound carriageway of the A14, close to Haughley and Woolpit, between junction 47A and junction 49 at Tot Hill on Sunday May 5.

The junction at Tot Hill with the A1308 became congested as the tailback becomes longer but traffic is now clear and both lanes have reopened.

The collision happened around 3.15pm between a Volvo lorry and a Triumph Herald classic car, which was left on its roof.

Paramedics from the East of England ambulance Service attended the scene but police said two people suffered only minor injuries.

Tailbacks were reported as stretching for two miles as emergency services dealt with the incident.

The crash came after Ipswich Town's last game of the season, with visiting home or away supporters travelling back to the north of the county or country, along with classic cars which had attended the Ipswich to Felixstowe rally.
