The collision happened shortly after 11am.

The stretch of road between the Fiveways roundabout and the Elveden crossroads has been closed.

Delays expected on A11 due to abnormal load

Delays are expected on the A11 Southbound from Heath Road (Snetterton Circuit) to A14 / A1304 (Newmarket Bypass) due to an abnormal load.

A small convoy including a large stainless steel vessel (two lanes wide) will set off around 9.30am today (Wednesday 26 March), being escorted down the A11 to the A14 and then east into Suffolk.

The narrow Elveden section and roadworks area are likely to be worst affected.
