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.”

A woman in her 30s was rushed to hospital after two men dressed in black hoodies threw a mystery liquid into her face during a “random” attack.
