A car ended up on its side and the driver taken to hospital after a collision on Somersham Road in Little Blakenham.

Police were called to the scene of a single vehicle collision at 11.30pm last night, where a car was found on its side.

Suffolk fire and ambulance services were also on hand to assist – with three fire engines mobilised, one each from Hadleigh, Princes Street and Stowmarket.

Police confirmed that the driver of the vehicle was taken to Ipswich Hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

The fire service called a stop on the incident at twenty past midnight.

Car crime has risen sharply in Ipswich – and 98% of its perpetrators went unpunished.

Fire response times in Suffolk are nearly three minutes more than national averages – and nearly two minutes behind other rural areas, according to new figures.

The number of anti-depressants prescribed in parts of Essex has risen by nearly a fifth in just three years, according to NHS data.

A burglar has been jailed for two and a half years after he was identified by DNA found on a water bottle left at the scene of the crime.

Fire crews were called to a house fire in Hatfield Peverel this afternoon which was caused by sunlight shining though a desk-mounted magnifying glass.

Police want to speak to two men captured on CCTV following the theft of 100 litres of diesel in Tiptree.

An Essex police officer who had blood spat in his face says his attacker will “feel like he’s got away with it” after being asked to pay just £50 compensation by Colchester magistrates.
