Two people have had to be cut out from their cars by the fire service after a crash in Beccles.

The collision between two cars on Queen Elizabeth Drive in the town happened at around 8.10am.

A spokesman for Suffolk Fire and Rescue said they were assisting the ambulance service on the scene and two people were trapped in two different cars.

They said: “We are assisting in releasing them from the vehicles. Police are in attendance and we are in the process of releasing people from the vehicles.”

A spokesman for Suffolk Police said a female driver had been left with minor shoulder injuries while the other driver has minor head injuries which are not life threatening or life changing.
