Detectives are still trying to establish how the man suffered his injuries and why he was in Northern Road, and investigations are ongoing.

County councillor for Sudbury and former mayor Jack Owen was also surprised at the incident - and why the injured man was taken as far as Cambridge for treatment.

"The police haven't given the extent of his injuries, but it must be very serious if he wasn't taken to closer hospitals in Colchester or Bury St Edmunds," he said.

Robert Spivey, deputy mayor of Sudbury, said: "We don't normally have incidents like that, particularly in that area. It's unusual.

"I hope the man continues to get better."

Officers are appealing for anyone who may have seen the man or been near the industrial estate on Northern Road between 6pm yesterday, Tuesday May 14 and 6am on Wednesday May 15 to contact them.

This includes anyone driving nearby with dash cams fitted in their vehicles.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact West CID on 101, quoting reference CAD 26 of 15 May or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
