TRAIN services have returned to normal after a car crashed into a Suffolk level crossing barrier this morning.

The smash happened in Station Road, Old Newton, around 7.10am.

A Ford Mondeo crashed into the barrier and ended up on the tracks, blocking the Suffolk-to-London line.

The car has now been removed and train services are running normally again.

Upper Brook Street is one of the oldest streets in Ipswich and over the centuries it has been home to several public houses and inns, writes David Kindred.
