The A14 has reopened following a serious lorry crash in Suffolk.

National Highways said the lorry had left the eastbound carriageway and entered a ditch between junction 51 at Needham Market and junction 52 at Claydon.

Suffolk Police said the HGV was believed to have aquaplaned in flood water at about 01:00 GMT, but the driver was not seriously hurt.

Delays remain in the area, National Highways said.

The A14 was shut until just before 10:30 GMT due to "the complexity of the scene".
