A van plunged into a ditch during a collision with another van on a main road in Suffolk today.

The crash happened on the A12 southbound in Saxmundham, near the junction with the B1119, around 7am.

Ambulance crews attended but a police spokesman said no-one was believed to have been seriously injured.

The collision involved a Ford Fiesta van and a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van.

The Ford is understood to have ended up in a ditch off the northbound carriageway.

The northbound carriageway was closed to allow for the van to be winched out of the ditch, the police spokesman said.

The road was reopen by 8.55am.
