Emergency services were called at around 12.45pm on Tuesday following reports of collision on the A47 Station Square in Lowestoft.

Police, several ambulance vehicles and an East Anglian Air Ambulance were sent to the scene.

Three fire crews - two from Lowestoft South and one from North Lowestoft - were also called.

On arrival they discovered a Vauxhall Agila - driven by a woman in her 70s - collided with several bollards, had mounted the pavement and crashed into a bench situated a few metres from the road.
