Cars were tailed back past junction 42 while the incident was dealt with.

Earlier in the morning a van also broke down in the A14 slip road at the sugar beet factory.

Trouble with a lorry on the A11 at Newmarket also caused tailbacks on the A14 between Bury St Edmunds and Newmarket.

A police spokesman said drivers had to dodge a lorry door which was opened into the carriageway.
