Motorists are experiencing two miles of queues on the A11 due to a broken down lorry

The vehicle broke down on the roundabout at Thickthorn earlier this afternoon.

At around 4pm police had shut off the central lane of the roundabout while they helped to move the vehicle.

But traffic was backing up for two miles down the road because there was one less lane for motorists to use at the roundabout and due to the fact drivers had to move out of the way.
