A moped rider suffered a serious arm injury after a collision with a van or lorry in north Suffolk sent her flying into a roadside bush.

The woman, thought to be in her 30s, was travelling along Warren Lane in Ellough, near Beccles, when the crash happened just after 2.30pm today.

A police spokesman said the collision had involved a lorry, though it was also reported as a van.

The woman was knocked from her scooter into a bush and firefighters were called on to help removed her safely before she was treated by medics.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service said: “An ambulance crew, rapid response vehicle, ambulance officer, and East Anglian Air Ambulance were dispatched. They treated a woman, believed to be in her 30s, who had a serious arm injury. She was treated at the scene and taken by land ambulance to James Paget University Hospital for further care.”

Suffolk police is appealing for witnesses after a 17-year-old was robbed and hit in the head with a baseball by men in balaclavas.

A teenager gunned a man down outside a petrol station over a comment that he “looked like the Milky Bar Kid”, and he is still on the run from police, a trial heard.

A world-renowned Suffolk harpist accused of taking the virginity of a schoolboy more than three decades ago told police the teenager had sexually assaulted her, a court has heard.

A Suffolk town which has faced 10 days of road closure “chaos” – has reacted with dismay to news of two more months of highways disruption.

A former solicitor who left the scene of a crash she caused while more than four times the drink-driving limit has been given a suspended prison sentence.

Ipswich is set to get its own high-tech version of the ‘Boris Bike’ - where cyclists can use a simple phone app to get on two wheels.

Organisations in a Suffolk town are teaming up to tidy litter from their streets and help preserve the environment.
