Emergency services were called out to two crashes near Hadleigh this morning.

Police, fire and ambulance attended a two-car collision north of the village of Raydon on the B1070 at 6.50am involving a VW Golf and a Citroen Xsara Picaso.

Fire crews from Hadleigh and Princes Street, in Ipswich, attended the incident and had to cut off the roof of the Citroen to free the driver who was trapped but was reported as not suffering any significant injuries.

There were delays on the stretch of the road and one lane was opened by 8am with the incident being cleared by 9.15am

Meanwhile, a vehicle came off the road on the A1141 road to Bildeston from Hadleigh, at 7.55am, and crashed into some bushes.

But a spokesman for Suffolk Police said there were no reports of any serious injuries.

The road was cleared by 9am.
