Firefighters helped free a trapped casualty after a crash on the A14 in Stowmarket on Thursday.

Fire engines from Needham Market, Stowmarket and Princes Street (Ipswich) were called to reports two cars had crashed on the westbound carriageway between junction 50, Stowmarket, and junction 49, Haughley, at just after 1pm.

A number of police officers and ambulance crews also attended, with casualty initially reporting neck pain.

Police control said the injuries sustained are thought to be minor and the incident was clear by around 3pm.

The road was blocked between the two junctions and westbound traffic was said to be queuing back past junction 51, the Needham Market/A140 junction.

Witnesses to the crash or anyone with information should call Suffolk Constabulary by dialling 101 and quoting CAD reference number 190 of Thursday, April 20.
