The patient, a woman in her late 30s, crashed her Alfa Romeo at the junction of Yoxford Road and Fordley Road in Middleton after taking ill at around 3.20pm.

Suffolk police closed the road while the vehicle was removed, reopening it around 4.30pm.

  • This news article upsets me greatly as a poor piece of journalism and research. If the EADT had done its research it would actually be found that the woman in question was left in the care of land ambulance crews to be taken to hospital (as stated on the air ambulance website) and not airlifted as stated here. It also upsets me that a woman is now having to read about her own traumatic experience in the local rag because people like to be nosy. Get put of personal lives please.

  • My sympathy and best to the woman - but it's ALFA Romeo, not Alpha.
