Traffic heading eastbound on the A14 is experiencing long delays at junctions on the Newmarket bypass in Suffolk, due to ongoing roadworks.

Motorists are reporting waiting up to 90 minutes, with queues north and south bound in the area, and two lanes of the road closed in both directions while the barrier is repaired.

"We've ensured that one lane still remains open while we work hard to complete the roadworks as quickly and as safely as possible, but motorists should allow plenty of extra time for their journey.

"There is approximately seven miles of queuing traffic and delays of at least an hour."
