The westbound carriageway of the A14 in mid-Suffolk has reopened after being closed as a tree was at risk of falling onto the road.

Police were called to the road at Stowupland, near Stowmarket, at 1pm on Saturday.

A Suffolk police spokesman confirmed officers had enforced an emergency closure as the tree would potentially block the A14 if it fell.
