There were long delays on the A14 yesterday after a lane was blocked on the Orwell Bridge. 

Officers were called to the broken-down car in the eastbound carriageway at about 5pm last night (June 24).

A spokesman for Suffolk police said: "Officers are currently on scene of the broken down Peugeot. 

"The car has broken down at the top of the Orwell Bridge and officers are looking to remove it as quickly as possible."

The AA Traffic Map is showing heavy delays in the area with queues building back to the Copdock Interchange.
