A man was taken to hospital after suffering injuries in a crash.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) was scrambled following reports someone had been involved in a collision near Loddon.

Paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service Trust, the rapid response vehicle from the EAAA, police and firefighters from Beccles and Lowestoft South were called out at 11.23pm on Saturday, November 16 after the man was injured in a road traffic collision at Gillingham.
