Travel: Busy town centre street still closed

A busy Ipswich road remains closed this morning following a building fire.

Upper Orwell Street will stay closed in both directions, between Eagle Street and St Helen’s Street, following the blaze at St Michael’s Church.

The county’s roads are otherwise currently free of any major disruption, with only rush hour hold-ups causing any delays.

But a man was treated for injuries following a single-vehicle crash on the A1101 at Icklingham.

The crash happened just after 8am and left a man trapped in his car. Firefighters from Mildenhall and Bury St Edmunds used cutting gear to release the man, who was then left in the care of paramedics.
