Emergency services, including a volunteer critical care paramedic from Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS), attended the scene, after two cars collided on Oulton Road.

The incident happened at around 5.30pm, near the road's junctions with Hollingsworth Road and Larch Road. One person is thought to have been trapped in one of the vehicles and had to be freed from it by firefighters.

The SARS paramedic assessed two men at the scene, one who had suffered a minor head injury, and another who had sustained chest injuries as a result of the collision.

One of the patients, a man aged in his 20s, was then required to be taken to hospital by the East of England Ambulance Service.
