Police have been called to several minor collisions across Suffolk this morning as heavy fog continues to cause poor driving conditions.

Police are advising motorists to take extra care while out on the roads until the fog has lifted, which is expected to be about mid-morning today.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said: “Drive to the conditions, drive slowly, leave enough time for your journey and allow sufficient distance with the vehicle in front.”

Among the incidents reported on the county’s roads today was a collision on the A143 near Botesdale between two motorcyclists.

One of the riders was taken to hospital with serious arm and leg injuries, which have been described as “potentially life-changing”.

  • Its hardly surprising there are so many accidents. On my short journey to work in the fog the amount of idiots with no lights on at all was shocking BUT the most shocking of all was the Police car that was driving in the thick fog with no lights on, these people are stupid it is not to see but to be seen...

  • Yes It was a proper old pea super on my drive from Woodbridge to Bury and I lost count of the motorists who failed to switch on their lights. The milkman who delivers to Grundisburgh is always a menace ( failing to check his mirrors before pulling off) today he decided to do just that but with no lights on too! RSoles, the lot of them.
