A crash involving a motorcycle caused delays for rush-hour drivers in a Suffolk town this afternoon.

The collision happened in Needham Road, Stowmarket, at the Combs Ford roundabout, at around 4.20pm.

The East of England Ambulance Service sent one ambulance crew to the collision.

A spokesman for the trust said paramedics treated one man at the scene.

The incident was initially described as a crash between a car and a motorcycle, but a spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary later said the collision was only believed to have involved a motorbike.

The motorcyclist sustained minor injuries, the spokesman added.
