One person has died after a serious road crash on the A11 in Mildenhall.
Police are currently at the scene of the two vehicle crash on the A11 at Barton Mills where a man died.
Emergency services were called to the scene of the collision just north of Fiveways on the A11 around 1.45am this morning, with a report that two vehicles had crashed and one car was on fire.
A male driver of one of the vehicles sadly died at the scene and a further man in the second vehicle was taken to West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds with minor injuries.
