A man has escaped serious injury after the van he was driving, which was transporting gas bottles, rolled onto its roof during a crash in Suffolk today.

Emergency services were called to the B1106 in Elveden, one mile from the Elveden Estate, shortly after 9.20am to reports of a single-vehicle collision involving a Vauxhall Vivaro van.

Suffolk Constabulary received reports that the van was “upside down in the middle of the carriageway”.

Three crews from Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service were sent to the crash to “make the scene safe” as there were said to be gas bottles inside the van.

The driver, who is believed to be aged in his 20s and was not trapped in the van, was taken to hospital by ambulance to be looked over because he sustained a cut to his arm, a police spokeswoman said.
