The southbound A11 was reduced to one lane between Elveden and Barton Mills following the incident, which happened near the Barton Mills roundabout at just before 5.30am.

The driver of the vehicle was freed by firefighters, with crews from Brandon, Mildenhall and Bury St Edmunds attending.

Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing team tweeted that the lorry was the only vehicle involved and the driver was not injured.

But they said it was a "complex recovery due to the vehicle being entangled in the crash barrier" and urged drivers to avoid the area if possible.
