The collision happened around 4.15am on today (July 13) near junction 37 at Newmarket.

It is thought one broke down with a following vehicle colliding with it. One lorry ended up on its side in the road.

A spokeswoman for the East of England Ambulance Service said: “Two ambulances, one rapid response vehicle and an ambulance officer attended and treated the two drivers.”

She said both drivers were taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridgeshire but their injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.

An A&E department in Suffolk had to close to ambulances for a temporary period because patient safety was at risk, it has been revealed.

Cash was stolen after an aggravated burglary in Brettenham where a liquid substance was thrown into a victim’s face.

Trees were torn down, roofs were ripped from houses in Essex this morning as fierce winds battered the county sparking traffic chaos.

East Anglia’s rail services faced a day of chaos as the morning storm brought trees down across several routes.
