A car rolled onto its side during a crash on a flooded part of the A14 in Suffolk this morning.

One lane of the westbound carriageway in Bury St Edmunds was shut following the collision involving a Fiat 500 shortly before 6am.

The driver – believed to be a man – suffered injuries that were not thought to have been serious.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Constabulary said the road in the area of the crash was severely flooded due to heavy rainfall and blocked drains.

Three fire crews – two from Bury St Edmunds and one from Elmswell – attended the scene along with police and ambulance crews.
