Emily, who lives in Rickinghall, near Diss, is a former pupil at Hartismere High School in Eye but is now studying horticulture at Otley College and a spokesman said that everyone at the campus was thinking of her.

Emily is receiving treatment at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge following the accident in Dog Lane in Bedfield, just north of Framlingham, at about 5pm on Sunday.

She was a passenger in a silver Subaru, the only car involved in the crash, which was being driven by a 26-year-old man from the Framlingham area.

The driver has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving, dangerous driving and driving without insurance. He was released on police bail and is required to return to Ipswich police station on March 6 as part of the ongoing investigation into the crash.

Police are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen the Subaru travelling from Framlingham to Bedfield prior to the accident.

Anyone with information about the incident should contact Pc Roy Dade at the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 01473 613500.
