Snow and ice causes FOUR accidents on A12 in Suffolk this morning - plus more on A14

Drivers in Suffolk are being urged to take extra care this morning after police were called to a flurry of accidents - including four on the A12 in just two hours.

Recent snow across the region and sub-zero overnight temperatures have left the county’s roads treacherous.

Suffolk police were called to an accident on the A12 at Martlesham Heath at 6.50am when a car skidded on the approach to the Tesco roundabout. No one was injured and no other vehicles were involved.

Officers were then called to the A12 at Wickham Market, following reports a car had come of the road and ended up in a ditch, at around 7.55am.

The vehicle’s driver reported injuries to their knee, but the injuries are not thought to be serious.
