All lanes on the A14 between junction 36 (Newmarket) and junction 35 (Stow cum Quy) are now reopened following road resurfacing after a car fire yesterday.

Emergency services were called to the westbound carriageway near junction 35 at 10.30am yesterday after reports that a car was well alight.

The carriageway was closed while recovery took place which caused long delays.
