A stretch of the A14 has reopened after a lorry and van collided.

The westbound carriageway was blocked following the crash, which happened near junction 46 at about 11.45am.

Police set up a temporary diversion at Beyton, and a single lane closure remained in place to allow for one of the vehicles to be recovered.

The ambulance service was also called to the scene, but no one was badly hurt in the crash, despite the Mercedes Sprinter van ending up partially underneath the lorry.

Suffolk police said the vehicles had been recovered by 2.50pm allowing the road to reopen.
