Witnesses to a serious crash in Suffolk which saw a van driver airlifted to hospital are being urged to contact police.

The crashed happened yesterday at around 10.55am on the B1115 in Great Finborough, near to Poplar Farm, and involved a tractor with a trailer and a white Ford Transit van.

Both vehicles were travelling towards Stowmarket when the tractor is reported to have made a turn into a small entrance.

Suffolk police said the van manoeuvred around two other vehicles, which were waiting behind the tractor, and went into a ditch.

The van driver, a man in his late 30s, suffered multiple factures in his legs and pelvis and was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge for treatment.
