A car has crashed into a ditch in a country lane in Suffolk.

Police, firefighters and paramedics were all called to the scene of a collision on the A1092, Cavendish Road, between the villages of Cavendish and Clare, at about 4.45pm.

A fire service spokesman said that one car had left the road and become stuck in a ditch.

Police closed the road in both directions, while one person was freed from the car and firefighters returned the car to the road.

The casualty at the scene was taken to hospital in the care of the East of England Ambulance Service.

Three fire engines were initially called to the scene - one from Clare, one from Long Melford and one from Haverhill.

One fire engine remained at the scene to assist.

The road was reopened about 6pm.
