Motorists are being warned of long tailbacks after a van and lorry collided on the A14 at Woolpit.

Police were called at 8.30am on Monday morning to reports of a two vehicle crash on the major Suffolk road.

A lorry is thought to have collided with a van at Woolpit, blocking both lanes heading westbound.

Tailbacks are reportedly stretching as far back as Stowmarket – eight miles from the scene of the crash.

An ambulance has been called but it is not yet clear if anybody was injured in the collision.
