A man in his 70s suffered facial injuries and was taken to hospital after a two-vehicle crash in Ipswich today.

Emergency crews were called to the junction of Cliff Lane and Landseer Road following reports of the collision at around 11.45am.

The incident caused traffic delays for a number of hours as engineers worked to clear an oil spill.
