Suffolk police were called at 3.34pm today to reports of a truck with a blown out tyre which became stuck on the inside lane on the westbound carriageway of the busy road shortly, before junction 51 at Needham Market.

Traffic is now building and cars are queuing back for miles past junction 52 at Claydon. Officers are advising drivers to avoid the area if at all possible while recovery is arranged. A second broken down vehicle is also causing problems at junction 58 between the A14 and the A12.

The articulated lorry has become stuck on the round about between the two busy roads and Felixstowe Road.

Traffic is now building in the area and officers are again warning of delays while they wait for recovery, which has been called, to arrive.
