A police car responding to an emergency call was involved in a collision with another vehicle on the A12 near Wickham Market this afternoon.

The crash happened at about 1.20pm on the southbound carriageway of the road, temporarily blocking traffic.

The other car involved in the crash, a blue Peugeot 206, also collided with the central reservation barrier just north of the junction for Wickham Market.

Police said paramedics were called as a precaution, but added that no one was thought to have been hurt in the crash.

It is believed the police car was on its way to assist a broken down car, which has since been dealt with by other officers.
