A motorcyclist has been taken to hospital with potentially life-changing injuries following a two-vehicle collision on a busy road near Botesdale this morning.

The incident, which involved two Honda motorcycles, happened on the A143 near Botesdale at about 5.40am.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said both male riders had sustained serious injuries with one described as having possibly life-changing injuries - including to the arm and leg.

Police, ambulance and a volunteer doctor from the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service attended the scene.

Both riders have been taken to the West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds.

The A143 is currently closed between Mill Road and Bury Road and diversions are in place. The road is expected to re-open by 10am.

Anyone who witnessed the collision or saw the vehicles travelling along the road before the accident should call Bury St Edmunds police on 101.
