Man taken to hospital after falling off ladder in Bramford

PUBLISHED: 17:04 21 January 2016 | UPDATED: 17:04 21 January 2016

A man was taken to hospital after falling from a ladder in Bramford this morning.

The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust received a call at 11.10am to St Marys Close, following reports that a man had fallen from a ladder in the village.

An ambulance crew and an ambulance officer attended the scene and treated a man in his 60s who had fallen approximately 10ft.

He had suffered a head injury and was suffering from back and pelvic pain.

He was taken to Ipswich Hospital for further treatment and his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

The Orwell Bridge has reopened this morning after 80mph winds battered Suffolk and brought its closure.

Several schools in Suffolk are to remain closed or open later this morning amid high winds.

Across Suffolk, dozens of bands, singers, solo acts, choirs and orchestras ply their trade on evenings and weekends as part of the county’s eclectic night time economy.

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’.
