A 77-year-old woman was in hospital yesterday after a crash involving a van in Suffolk.

Firefighters cut free the woman from the wreckage of a collision involving a red Hyundai and an Iveco van at Evans Heath, Hadleigh.

Two fire engines were called to the scene shortly before 7.20pm. Crews used hydraulic equipment to remove the roof of the car before she was freed just before 8pm.

She suffered minor injuries and was taken to Ipswich Hospital, a Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said.

He said no action was taken over the van driver.

The glorious sunshine over most of the Bank Holiday weekend brought out the crowds to Brightlingsea Regatta for one of the traditional highlights of the Essex summer season.

Two men from Essex have been arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated social media comments in the wake of the Manchester Arena attack.

Proposals to redevelop Ipswich Cornhill and turn it into a showpiece for the town centre look set to be approved by planners this week.

Youngsters from Cedarwood Primary School in Kesgrave are preparing for their big Bank Holiday Monday match at Wembley.

There were explosions of colour in Ipswich’s Christchurch Park as around 400 people donned their running shoes and volunteered to have powder paint thrown at them – all in a good cause.

From a small one-off gig in memory of a friend, a Suffolk festival has now celebrated their 10th event with a star-studded lineup and their biggest ever turnout.

Inspired by tragic loss, heartfelt thanks or loved ones gone too soon - nearly 200 brave souls overcame their nerves at the weekend in appreciation of Suffolk’s largest hospital.
