A MOTHER and baby are recovering this morning after a serious two car crash on the A14.

Emergency services were called to the Ipswich bound carriageway near to the Nacton slip-road after a green Saab Convertible and a red Dodge Caliber collided at 6.30pm last night.

The crash left one of the cars overturned in a ditch and the other blocking the road.

Two people were trapped inside their vehicle and had to be cut free by firefighters who took the roof off.

Four ambulances were called to take three people to Ipswich Hospital but a doctor at the scene said they were not believed to be seriously hurt.
