A serious accident has taken place on the B1106 near Fornham All Saints.

Collision investigators cordoned off the scene of a serious two-vehicle crash on the outskirts of Bury St Edmunds today.

The fire service was also called to the incident, in which a blue Land Rover and a grey Ford S-Max collided.

Crews from Bury and Ixworth removed the roof of one vehicle using hydraulic cutting gear.

A female occupant of the vehicle was taken to Cambridgeshire’s Addenbrooke’s Hospital after sustaining suspected serious injuries.

A section of the road was closed while forensic collision investigators attempted to identify the events that led up to the crash.

High winds have led to rail service cancellations including on the mainline from Suffolk and Essex to London and local routes between Sudbury and Marks Tey.

High winds have brought down overhead power cables leaving homes in many Suffolk and Essex communities without electricity.

A well known west Suffolk pub has suddenly closed its doors after the district council received a licence review application from police, stating the premises was ‘associated with serious crimes and disorder’.
