Motorists are being warned of delays following a two vehicle collision on a major Suffolk road.

Police were called at 8am today with reports of a crash involving a car and a van by the Shell garage on the A143 at Stanton.

The ambulance service was also called to the scene, where one person was complaining of neck and chest pain.

The road is partially blocked, leading to some traffic congestion in the area.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service said: “We were called to reports of a collision on Bury Road, Stanton, this morning at 8.01am.

“We sent one ambulance to assess three patients, who didn’t require hospital treatment.”

When we dwell on the current impact of global warming, we tend to think of polar ice caps melting or Californian wild fires, both of which might seem a world away from sleepy Suffolk. But Jonathan Dyke, the managing director of Suffolk Yacht Harbour, says he can already see the impact of climate change on his harbour in Levington.

It will be a grey start to Wednesday in East Anglia with brighter but colder weather set to creep in as the day goes on.
