Suffolk police were called at 8.25am after the crash on the A14 eastbound carriageway just before junction 55 for Copdock Interchange.

The accident, which involved a red Ford Transit van, a blue Saab and a black Ford Fiesta, blocked one lane of the carriageway and caused lengthy tailbacks as far back as junction 54 for Whitehouse Interchange.

A police spokesman said: “Fire are in attendance as a lady needs to be cut from her vehicle. Paramedics are also on scene.”

Three fire crews have been sent to the scene. A spokesman said one casualty was medically trapped and the vehicle was stabilised to allow the roof to be fully removed.

The woman was taken to Ipswich Hospital suffering from neck pain.

Two broken down cars also caused problems near the scene of the crash.

Don't believe the message that Jeremy Corbyn is unelectable

There’s something about Jez (as we hip young things on social media call Jeremy Corbyn) that thoroughly warms my cockles. Perhaps it’s his air of humility, his open-necked honesty or simply his dogged under-dogness?

Providing care for those in extreme old age, and with serious long-term health problems, is one of the major challenges facing society – especially for an area like East Anglia which has a disproportionately high number of older people.

A new art trail in Bury St Edmunds has already been followed by thousands of people, surpassing the expectations of its organisers.

People living near the Bulmer Fox pub (in Bulmer Tye near Sudbury) are at the end of their tether with the number of cars crashing throug their fence.

Another car has left the road at an accident blackspot on the Suffolk/Essex border – just days after an urgent plea was issued for measures to reduce the number of crashes.
