Fire crews were called after a car and a lorry crashed on the main road to Norwich and the road was closed both ways whilst emergency services attend the scene.

Suffolk police were called at 10.15am to reports of a collision near Thwaite on the A140 between the pub The Walnut Tree and Stoke Ash.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service and an ambulance were also in attendance as one of the motorists sustained serious injuries.

The lorry involved in the collision was carrying a load of steel which has been shed across the road.

The road sustained damage to both sides and required work before it was reopened.

The A140 was closed in both directions for some time after traffic began taking it turns to pass the scene but police remained on the scene to release the traffic slowly to relieve the pressure whilst the closure remained in place.

Two fire engines from Eye and Debenham attended the scene as well as one from Diss in Norfolk.
