A man is calling for changes to be made on a Long Melford road that he has branded "dangerous" after it saw two crashes in just one week.

Tim West, who lives in the village north of Sudbury, said the B1064 junction at The Green, opposite the entrance to Melford Hall, has seen numerous crashes over the years.

He has now called for Suffolk Highways to add measures to the road to make it safer. 

This follows two crashes within one week on the stretch of road – the first of which was a two-vehicle crash that took place on Tuesday, June 27, and saw one woman taken to West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds.

Then on Friday, June 30, there was a second two-vehicle crash on the road where one driver suffered minor injuries.

Mr West said of the junction: "It really needs better signage to make it clear to people coming from the Clare direction that they don't have priority.

"At the moment there is just one stop sign and a slightly faded white line across the road.

"Twice over the years I have contacted Highways when it has almost rubbed away and they have come and repainted it, but it is still causing issues."

While Mr West said he understands re-aligning the road could be too expensive, he said he thinks measures should be bought in before it is too late. 

He hopes to arrange a meeting with the parish council and county council to discuss options for the site.

"It is something I feel quite strongly about, as it is only a question of time before somebody is going to get hurt there," he said.

"If something big hits something small, you've really got a problem." 

Suffolk Highways has been approached for comment.
