The A14 in mid-Suffolk has reopened after the road surface started to break up on Friday afternoon. 

In the early hours of Saturday morning, National Highways: East tweeted that the carriageway defect on the A14 westbound between J49 and J47 near Woolpit has been repaired by contractors.

The road has now reopened and there are no longer delays in the area. 

The incident comes after the A140 near Mickfield was closed on Wednesday due to the condition of the road surface.
