A part of the busy A140 in Suffolk has been closed to fix a damaged pub sign.

Suffolk Highways said it had shut the route between the Earl Stonham and Mickfield junctions after the damage to the Magpie pub's sign.

There are emergency road diversions around the A140 and drivers are asked to find other travel routes.
