A woman in her 80s was taken to hospital with serious chest injuries after a car crash during the morning rush hour, with another driver also hospitalised.

At around 8.10am on Friday, October 19, a white Toyota Yaris and a red For Fiesta collided on Queen Elizabeth Drive in Beccles, at the junction with Duke Street.

Both drivers had to be cut from their cars by Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service.
