Paramedics have treated a man for serious injuries following a crash in Frostenden.

Emergency services – including firefighters and police officers – are at the scene of the accident in Gipsy Lane.

A police spokesman said a man, who is believed to have been driving one of the cars, has been taken to hospital.

His injuries are described as serious, but not life-threatening or life-changing.

Firefighters from Southwold, Halesworth and Lowestoft South were sent to help at the scene at 6.11pm.

They had called a stop to the incident at 7.27pm.

No-one else involved in the crash is believed to have been hurt, the police spokesman said.

One lane of the A12 southbound is currently blocked between the road’s junctions for Frostenden and Clay Common.
