Suffolk police are now appealing for witnesses to the crash, which saw a blue Rover career off the road into a field at 6.20am today.

Officers were called to the southbound stretch of the A11 at Red Lodge. The five occupants of the vehicle all received injuries and were taken to hospital by ambulance.

None of the injuries are serious or life-threatening and a 23-year-old male was arrested at the scene on suspicion of drink driving.

One lane of the southbound carriageway was closed while emergency services dealt with the incident. The road fully re-opened at 9am.

Officers are appealing for information in relation to this incident and would particularly like to hear from anyone who saw the Rover driving along the A11 before it left the road.
