A lane of the A14 was blocked to traffic this morning after a lorry was forced to stop due to a blown tyre.

Police blocked traffic from using the inside lane of the road on the westbound carriageway just after junction 37 for Exning, near Newmarket.

A second lorry was also reported to have stopped at the scene to assist.

Police said some debris had been left on the road as a result of the suspected blowout, just before 7.30am.

Traffic was said to have been light at the time and was coping well around the closure.
