Firefighters had to free a trapped motorist whose car has collided with a wall in a Suffolk town.

The single-vehicle crash involving a silver Ford Fiesta happened in Saxmundham Road, Leiston shortly before 11.30pm on Thursday.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Constabulary said the building involved was a cottage, but it was not clear as this stage if the car had hit the property or a garden wall.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service also sent three crews, one each from Aldeburgh, Leiston and Saxmundham.

The driver of the car had to be released from the car.
