The car involved is thought to be a Ford Focus.

The motorcyclist is thought to have suffered injuries but they are not thought to be life threatening or life changing.

“Two ambulances and an ambulance officer attended the scene to treat one patient, who was taken to West Suffolk Hospital for further treatment.”

A police spokeswoman later confirmed the road had fully reopened at around 4.30pm.
