Emergency services were called to an incident at the end of Hadleigh high street after a collision involving two cars blocked the road both ways.

Police were called to the incident at 4.05pm to reports that a Ford Mondeo and Ford Feista had collided in Benton Street.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service attended the scene to assist with the incident from Ipswich East, Princes Street and Hadleigh as one of the drivers had to be freed from their car.

An ambulance was also called to the scene as one of the drivers, a female, suffered from a fractured sternum in the collision.

Police diverted traffic down Hook Lane as both lanes of Benton Street were completely blocked.

The road has now been reopened after three hours of closure and both cars have been recovered.
