Travel update: Icy roads and delays on the trains

ICY roads remain the threat for motorists this morning as temperatures plummeted again overnight.

Drivers making their way to work during the rush hour can expect a relatively hassle free journey with no major disruptions on the county’s roads.

An earlier broken down lorry in the westbound carriageway of the A14 between junction 53 at Whitehouse and 52 at Claydon caused minor problems at around 7am.

A Suffolk police spokesman said the lorry was cleared in time for the morning rush.

He said while there are no reported accidents at the moment motorists must take care as patches of ice lurk on country roads and more minor routes.
