Councillor Graham Newman, Suffolk County Council’s cabinet member for roads and transport, said: “I’d like to congratulate our area highways staff and colleagues at Keir MG for reacting so quickly today.
“With over 150 reported incidents, they’ve worked non stop, and will be doing so into the evening, to make sure Suffolk’s roads are safe, and open for Christmas day.”
