A man was airlifted to hospital with “life-threatening” injuries following a crash between a car and a motorcyclist.

The accident happened in Benton Street shortly after 1pm.

The air ambulance landed at the scene to help treat the male motorcyclist, believed to be in his 60s.

He was given “specialist treatment” by air medics at the scene before he was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital with “potentially life-threatening” injuries, according to the ambulance service.

The air ambulance service has now said he is “stable” in hospital with “serious” injuries.

An occupant of the car, believed to be a woman in a Ford Fiesta, was taken to Ipswich Hospital as a precaution with injuries which are not thought to be serious.

Fire crews from Hadleigh, Ipswich and Colchester were also called.

The road, which leads to the A12, was closed until around 4.20pm.

Ipswich’s role as the county town of Suffolk is being questioned, with some suggesting Bury St Edmunds is more deserving of the title.

Arlington’s Brasserie, in Ipswich, has an historic link with the women’s suffrage movement and next week it will host a celebration of International Women’s Day.

A new push is underway to recruit more ‘on call’ firefighters to make up a shortfall of around 40 across the county.

TV antique experts will be at a Suffolk estate today to film an episode of Flog It for the forthcoming series.

Highways England chiefs have said an update on whether the Orwell Bridge will be open or closed to drivers today has been delayed again until around 9.30am.

An unlicensed driver must pay more than £2,500 in compensation after damaging a work colleague’s car before causing a crash and driving off.

Highways England chiefs have said the Orwell Bridge is “highly likely” to close between 10am and 6pm today with gusts of up to 65mph expected on the A14.
