Traffic delays are likely on part of the A12 as police escort a large rig across the county.

The large vehicle and cargo will occupy more than one lane of traffic and motorists are advised to avoid the route it is taking or to expect delays,

The escort will begin at 12pm to minimise disruption.

Starting on local roads in Bawdsey the rig will head through Alderton, Hollesley, Melton, part of the A12 and end its journey in Martlesham.

The affected routes are as follows:
