With the breakdown happening on one of the single carriageway sections of the main road, the blockage is causing heavy delays to motorists travelling through the area.

A police spokesman posting on Twitter has said the vehicle is currently waiting to be recovered and has advised commuters to avoid the area where possible.

It comes after a two vehicle crash on the A11 near the Thickthorn Roundabout saw heavy delays for morning commuters elsewhere in the county.
