Drivers are being warned of delays as police are set to escort a 100-tonne shaft through Suffolk. 

Suffolk police will be escorting the 23-metre long abnormal load which is heading from Sizewell A to Barnsley on Thursday. 

The escort is expected to set off at about 11am. 

The route will leave Lover's Lane in Sizewell before joining the B1122.

It will then head onto the A12 in east Suffolk before heading over the Orwell Bridge and following the A14 west to the Cambridgeshire border.

Suffolk police will then leave the load with officers from other forces.
