An ambulance on blue lights crashed into a road sign on a slip road off the A14 in Suffolk last night.

No-one was hurt in the collision, which happened on the Elmswell slip road at around 5.15pm, and traffic was not held up as a result.

No patients were on board at the time but the ambulance was responding to a 999 call, although bosses could not say which type of emergency they had been sent to.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service said: “At about 5.15pm yesterday an ambulance was involved in a collision with a road sign off the Elmswell slip road of the A14.

“The ambulance was en route to a patient.
