A14 commuters have been hit by two rush hour incidents in 14 hours, one of which closed the road.

Police were called to the westbound carriageway at junction 49, the A1308 exit at Stowmarket, at 6.10pm last night to a collision involving three vehicles on the central reservation, which led to the road being closed at about 6.30pm.

Though the fire service had to cut the roof off a car, Suffolk Police say there were no serious injuries.

One lane was reopened at 7.30p[m, but police were on site until 9pm.

Then at 8.30am this morning police were called to a car that had suffered a blow-out in the eastbound nearside lane between junctions 43 and 44, the sugar factory and Moreton Hall exits.

Though it was off the carriageway by 9am, it caused long tailbacks.
