Emergency services have closed the A1092 Windmill Hill in Long Melford this morning after a vehicle crashed into a wall.

Suffolk police officers were called at around 5.45am after initial reports that a vehicle had crashed into a brick wall, believed to be the wall of a small barn.

Paramedics and firefighters were both called to the scene to help extricate and treat three people in the vehicle.

Five ambulances, two rapid response cars, an ambulance officer and the Magpas helimedix car attended to treat three people.

An East of England Ambulance Service spokeswoman said that all three had been taken to West Suffolk Hospital – two in a life-threatening condition and a third with serious injuries.

Motorists are being urged to use an alternative route this morning while the road is closed.
