A busy road near Saxmundham has re-opened after a Tesco lorry got stuck in mud while trying to do a three-point-turn.
Suffolk police have confirmed that the B1119 has been re-opened following the recovery of the lorry which needed to be towed away from the road.
Traffic was building up in both directions but is now free flowing again.
The driver is believed to have become stuck at around 2.45pm after trying to turn around on the single lane, B road.
A motorist who was stuck on the road behind the lorry said that a few cars managed to get past the lorry, however many could not fit. Most were forced to turn around and go on a different route.
