Police are appealing for witnesses after two lorries collided on the A14 at Risby this morning.

The road was closed between junction 38, Newmarket East and junction 42 for Bury St Edmunds, in both directions through much of the rush hour after one of the lorries ended up straddling the central reservation.

The road has now fully reopened.

Police were called to the collision at 7.03am together with fire and ambulance crews.

The driver of one of the lorries had to be freed by the fire service and sustained minor injuries.

He was taken to hospital but was released this afternoon.

Soon after he was freed one lane westbound was re-opened.

The east bound carriageway remained closed until 11am to allow for the lorry to be recovered and the barrier to be repaired.

Police are asking anyone who may have seen what happened to contact PC Mike Geeson at Bury St Edmunds Roads Policing Unit by dialling Suffolk Police on 101 and quoting CAD 37 of today, Tuesday 20 October.
