A stretch of the A11 near Mildenhall has re-opened in both directions after a man was freed from an overturned lorry.

The man became medically trapped inside his lorry after it rolled over in the crash around 5.25am, near the Fiveways Roundabout.

Three fire crews from Mildenhall, Bury St Edmunds and Brandon were called to free the man, who thankfully is not said to have suffered any injuries.

The lorry had become entangled in the central reservation - causing extensive damage, prompting Highways England and Suffolk police to close the road while carrying out repairs.

The road re-opened shortly before 11am.
