A man is in hospital with suspected life-changing injuries after a three car crash on the A143 near Bury St Edmunds.

Police were called shortly after 5.30am on Wednesday after a silver BMW, blue Citroën, a blue Vauxhall Agila and black Land Rover collided outside Rede Hall Farm Park.

The road was closed between Chedburgh and Whepstead as police, fire crews and the ambulance service were called to the scene.

Engineers from UK Power Networks were also called as a pole was damaged in the incident.

A Suffolk police spokesman later confirmed that the driver of the Citroën, a man in his 50s, had been taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.

His injuries are believed to be life-changing, the spokesman added.

The A143 remains closed as the vehicles are recovered after the crash.

Anyone with information connected to the incident is urged to contact Suffolk police, quoting CAD 29 of October 6.
