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.”

Four senior Suffolk County Council officers being paid six-figure salaries have seen their pay rise significantly over the last year – while other staff have had their earnings pegged by the government’s 1% pay cap.

A man who capsized off the coast of Felixstowe owes his life to his life jacket, quick thinking witnesses and the efforts of coastguard and the RNLI.

More than half of people’s first choice preferences for a new A120 route back a new junction with the A12 between Rivenhall and Kelvedon – though Essex County Council has said the final decision will not come down to a ‘popularity contest’.

Firefighters have returned to scene of a straw fire, which has re-ignited just outside a village near Stowmarket.

A couple from Clacton who failed to safeguard more than £40,000 worth of tenants’ deposits as part of their lettings agency business have narrowly avoided prison.

Police are investigating a spate of break-ins at allotments in Ipswich.

The threat of ‘enormous’ traffic disruption looms over a Suffolk village if motorists ignore diversion signs during a four-week road closure.
