Engineers have this morning been investigating the cause of problems on Lowestoft's bascule bridge.

Signal lights on the bridge, which links the south and north parts of the town and is one of the main through roads, failed this morning.

The problems led to long queues through the town, with traffic to the south jammed as far as the Bloodmoor roundabout.

The lights were restored by 2pm.
