Motorists coming off the peninsula going towards Copdck on the A14 are experiencing delays this morning . 

Police are currently in attendance at the scene of a large diesel spillage on the Westbound carriageway of the A14 at Wherstead, Ipswich.

Officers were called at around 4.42am on this morning (Monday, 13 June) to a report of an HGV leaking a large amount of fuel onto the A14.

There is currently one lane closed on the A14 Westbound carriageway between Wherstead and Copdock, however both lanes may need closing periodically whilst the spillage is cleared. This is likely to lead to some traffic delays throughout the morning.

Highways England have been notified and are also attending the scene.
