A man in his 60s had to be cut out of his car after sustaining serious injuries in a two-vehicle crash in Norton.

The incident happened at 2.40pm on the A1088 and involved a gold Jeep and a silver Mercedes.

One person was able to get out of their vehicle unaided but the male driver of the Mercedes was trapped inside.

Fire crews were called to the scene to remove the car’s roof and once released the man was treated by a volunteer doctor from the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service and paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service.

He was then taken by land ambulance to the West Suffolk Hospital with serious injuries.

Both vehicles will require recovery and the road is currently closed in both directions.

Firefighters tackled a “needless” blaze at the former Manganese Bronze plant in Ipswich on Sunday night.

The fire in the top floor of the two-storey derelict building, behind houses on Hadleigh Road, was caused by trespassers.
 The fire was reported at around 5.30pm on April 30 and six crews, including an aerial appliance, were expected to battle the blaze for several hours last night.
 Station Commander Jon Southgate, of Princes Street station, said the fire was caused by someone deliberately or accidentally setting the fire.
 “There are numerous discarded needles around the site and from experience we know there will be needles inside as well,” he said. “We will not be entering the building because I want to ensure the safety of our firefighters. 
 “It is a shame that we are now going to have four crews fighting a completely needless and preventable fire.”

It may have been a forgettable season finish for Blues fans at Portman Road on Saturday – but one moment of magic should cheer even the most desolate of supporters.
