A man has died after following a crash between two lorries on the A14 in Suffolk.

The collision happened just before 10am on Tuesday at Rougham near Bury Edmunds.

The driver of one of the lorries, a man aged in his 40s, died at the scene while the other lorry driver was taken to hospital as a precaution.

He didn't sustain any serious injuries.

The eastbound carriageway is still closed between junctions 43 and 45 and police say it is expected to stay shut for much of the evening while an investigation takes place and the two vehicles are recovered.

Meanwhile, Highways England have confirmed there are no plans to close the Orwell Bridge on Tuesday despite strong winds in the area as a result of Storm Francis.
