A young girl under the age of 10 was taken to hospital following a collision with a moped in Lowestoft today.

The incident, which happened at around noon, took place in the Clapham Road car park near the library and the job centre in the town.

Suffolk Police said they were called to reports of the incident at 12.05pm. A spokesman said: “It was reported to be between a pedestrian and a moped, in the car park between the library and the job centre near Clapham Road South.”

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service said an ambulance was on the scene at 12.06pm and said they transported a girl under the age of 10 to James Paget Hospital in Gorleston.

Today we can finally reveal the names of the people selected to be on our first ever Inspiring Women of Suffolk list.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.
