Firefighters freed a casualty who was trapped in their vehicle after a road accident in north Suffolk last night.

Paramedics were called to the B1117 at Ashfield Green, near Stradbroke, just before 7pm, following an accident involving two vehicles.

Fire crews from Eye and Harleston were called to free a casualty from inside one of the vehicles.

They used a long board to remove the casualty and had them released by just after 8pm.

One male casualty was taken to Norfolk and Norwich Hospital.

“His condition wasn’t thought to be life threatening,” a spokesman for the ambulance service said.
