Commuters are facing large delays on the A47 after a crash between two cars during rush hour.

The second lane of the dual carriageway is closed westbound between the A146, Loddon Road, to A140, Ipswich Road.

A BMW and Alfa Romeo were involved in the incident where it is believed one of the cars "shunted" into the other.
