25 people died on country roads in Suffolk last year, government figures have revealed.

A John Deere tractor collided with the lorry on a “blind bend” on the road near Alpheton at 3.30pm, police said.

Coolant oil spilt on to the road, covering an area of around 120ft.

Police closed off the stretch of road in both directions between the Old Bury Road and the A1141 junctions and directed traffic as Highways England officials worked to clear the area.

Police reopened the road at around 6pm after the work was completed. The road did not need to be re-tarmacked.

The drivers were uninjured. There were no arrests.
