Officers were called to the incident at 6.30pm at the bridge at the Haughley junction.

An 18-year-old woman from the Stowmarket area was pulled to safety by police officers after she was found dangling her legs over the westbound carriageway towards Bury St Edmunds.

A stretch of the road was blocked for more than an hour, traffic was later diverted around the scene of the incident.

After talking her down, the teenager was arrested on suspicion of causing a public disturbance.
