A driver had to be treated for shock at the scene of a five vehicle crash this morning on the A140 at Earl Stonham.

The road has now reopened, but was at a standstill from around 9am until 10.30am after the dramatic crash that saw a lorry and four cars collide.

Police and an ambulance arrived at the scene shortly after the crash.

The road had to be partially closed while the vehicles were recovered and paramedics treated a driver who was in shock.
