Traffic is backing up to the Haughley junction, a spokesman for Suffolk police said, following this morning’s crash involving a silver Mondeo estate at about 9.40am.

The spokesman said lane one was still blocked and they were waiting for the vehicle to be recovered.

About two metres of the central reservation barrier has been badly damaged. No-one was injured in the crash.

The fire service sent five vehicles to the scene, including from Princes Street, Needham Market, Elmswell and Stowmarket.

•Emergency services also attended a single-vehicle accident this morning on the A1071 between Hadleigh and Polstead.

One person suffered bruising to her neck and chest and was taken to Colchester General Hospital to be checked over.

The crash involved a black Peugeot 207 and came into police at about 9.20am.

The road is partially closed until the car is recovered.

Two people have been killed in a collision on a road near Newmarket.

Fears have been raised that Suffolk may have a systemic problem with how children’s homes are run after a third establishment was given a poor Ofsted rating in the last 10 weeks.

Jennifer Pearson from Felixstowe claims she had dog mess shoved through her letter box, her tyres slashed, and even had people spit at her – leaving her youngest daughter in tears.

Sixteen people were rescued from rising water after four cars and a bus got stuck in high tide on The Strood crossing at Mersea Island.

A community close to the Essex Suffolk border has been left shocked and saddened following the death of a pedestrian.

The heart of two communities shone through as well-wishers - including an MP - rushed to help people injured in two serious falls.

Suffolk may have enjoyed an almost frost-free winter so far, but the big freeze descended on one town this weekend and so did scores of visitors enticed by the ice.
