Suffolk Constabulary were called to the crash just after 10.15am.

A Fiat 500 has crashed into the front of the clothes shop.

Edward Harvey, store manager at nearby shop Jack Wills, said: “I heard a big smash and then I saw there was a Fiat 500 in the window.

“I didn’t see what happened, but I just heard the glass smash.

“There are a lot of people having a look now.”

A Suffolk police spokeswoman said a female driver, believed to be in her seventies, was the only person in the Fiat at the time of the crash.

She added that staff at the shop were not hurt as they were towards the rear of the shop at the time of the crash.

It is believed the shop will be open tomorrow.
