A 15-year-old girl was taken to hospital yesterday after being thrown from a horse.

Ambulance crews were called at 5.42pm yesterday to Stisted Road in Greenstead Green.

Due to access issues the hazardous area response team were called to help safely transport the girl.

An ambulance spokesperson said: “The girl suffered injuries to her neck, back and hip and we administered her with pain relief at the scene.

“She remained fully conscious throughout and her condition isn’t thought to be life threatening.

“It was important to make sure that we moved her safely without injuring her further and she was taken to Broomfield Hospital for further care.”

A man in his 30s has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving in connection with a crash between two lorries and a car today.

The mother of a 21-year-old killed in a crash at the same spot which claimed the life of a teenage girl this month has called for a lower speed limit on the road.

There is further evidence that drivers in Suffolk are taking more notice of the region’s speed limits after figures showed that the number caught on the A12 has fallen by near two thirds over the last year.

A shortage of the right “calibre” of people applying to be police officers in Suffolk has led to many advertised vacancies being left unfilled, it can be revealed.

The tireless work of two fundraisers motivated by the search for missing serviceman Corrie McKeague has helped raise more than £3,000 for the Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue team.

The sacking of Essex’s chief fire officer has been branded unfair and unjust by union leaders.

As Ipswich Town take to the field against Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow afternoon, one diehard Owls fan will be hoping the team he has followed since the 1920s can return to South Yorkshire with an away win.
