Police said no serious injuries were reported at the scene of the pile-up on the A12 northbound near Wickham Market.

The road was blocked in both directions for more than an hour by officers following the collision which took place at around 7pm near the B1438 junction, a Suffolk Constabulary spokesman said.

The stretch of the A12 was re-opened by police at around 8.30pm after the vehicles and debris had been removed.

The crash involved a blue Vauxhall Vectra, a white Citroen Saxo and a silver Peugeot 307.
