A woman suffered serious injuries in a crash involving four vehicles in Newmarket this evening.

Firefighters, police and ambulance crews were sent to Fordham Road, close to its junction with Willie Snaith Road, at around 5pm today.

Three fire engines, two from Newmarket and one from Burwell, helped to free a woman who had become trapped in her car during the crash.

A police spokesman said: “There was a woman who was trapped in her car, she had serious injuries but these aren’t thought to be life-threatening at this stage.

“Investigation work was ongoing but I’m hearing now that the road re-opened as of about 6.45pm.

“Four vehicles were involved but the others had minor injuries.”

A section of Fordham Road was closed for a short time while crash investigators carried out enquiries at the scene.

The road opened to traffic again at around 6.45pm.

The injured woman’s current condition is not known at this time.

An appeal has been launched to bring home a much-loved mother who has become stranded in Russia after falling desperately ill on a family holiday.

A 75-year-old woman has died after being involved in a crash last week in Felixstowe.

Essex Police are looking to identify a cyclist who died last week in Great Oakley after suffering a cardiac arrest.

The family of a man who reportedly froze to death outside the home he had been evicted from may finally get some answers nine months on.

More people are born on September 26 than any other day of the year, just nine months and 23 days after Christmas.

Authorities have seized £100,000 of cash found hidden inside packs of bed linen at Harwich International Port.

It was a coastguard callout which had all the hallmarks of a dramatic rescue in the making.
