Ambulance crews, firefighters from five stations and a number of police cars were sent to the scene of a single vehicle crash in north Suffolk this evening.

One man was taken to hospital as a result of the crash, which happened shortly after 6.30pm today on the A134 at Barnham.

He was treated for minor injuries at the scene, a police spokesman said, and was taken to West Suffolk Hospital for further care.

The crash involved only one vehicle and is thought to have happened near the Barnham crossroads where the A134 meets The Street.

Initial reports suggested the man may have been trapped so five fire engines were called.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service sent two pumps from Bury St Edmunds and one engine from Brandon while Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service dispatched two vehicles from Thetford.

The fire service were stood down shortly after arriving at the scene, the police spokesman said.

The man’s injuries are not believed to be serious or life-threatening, he added.
