A road was blocked this morning while emergency services freed a female driver from her overturned vehicle.

Suffolk police were called to reports of the collision in Middlewood Green shortly after 7.30am this morning.

Three fire engines were also called to the single vehicle crash, which left a car upside down in a ditch and a female driver trapped in the vehicle.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said: "Fire crews were called to help extract the driver from the car.

"The road is currently blocked by the incident as ambulance, police and fire work at the scene."

The woman has now been removed from the vehicle and has been taken to hospital for precautionary measures.

The exact location of the incident is unclear, but it is understood to have occurred just off the A140 between Stonham Parva and Middlewood Green.

The road remains partially blocked while recovery takes place.
