A woman is in hospital after firefighters were forced to cut her free from her car following a collision with a tree in Felixstowe.

Emergency services were called to Port of Felixstowe Road at 12.10pm today after reports emerged a blue Ford Mondeo had driven in to a tree in a single-vehicle accident.

Fire crews spent around 30 minutes releasing the trapped woman, using cutting equipment to gain access to one side of the vehicle.

The woman, in her 40s, was taken to Ipswich Hospital with suspected minor head injuries, an East of England Ambulance Service spokesman said.

A Suffolk Constabulary spokesman added her injuries were not thought to be serious.
