Five vehicles were involved in a major crash on the A14 in west Suffolk this evening - causing two people to be injured and delays for other drivers during evening rush hour.

Suffolk police were called to reports of a collision in the eastbound carriageway at Rougham, near Bury St Edmunds, at around 5.20pm.

A police spokesman said two people were injured – though neither were thought to be in a serious condition – and “quite a lot of disturbance”.

The vehicles involved were a black Mazda, grey Ford, blue Peugeot and red Vauxhall. A brown Land Rover was also reported to have been involved, but police said this had not been confirmed.

A police spokesman said that despite the number of vehicles, the road was able to reopen relatively quickly.
