Delays on the A14 are costing Suffolk businesses £140 million a year according to a new report on the impact the road is having on the county's economy.

The study by accountants firm Ernst and Young says the time lost in delays across the A14 costs companies over £110 million with a further £29 million lost by supply chain industries.

They believe ending congestion on the road could instead generate revenue and create thousands of more jobs.
