A roundabout on the A140 near Eye was blocked for several hours after a lorry overturned.

The incident happened at about 10am on the Yaxley roundabout, which connects the A140 with Eye Road and Castleton Way.

A spokesman for Suffolk police confirmed the A140 had been partially blocked in both directions.

The driver of the HGV has not suffered any serious injuries, the spokesman added.

The road closure was removed by police shortly after 2pm.

The roundabout opened in March this year as part of an upgrade designed to prevent miles of tailbacks and fatal collisions on the A140.
