A female pedestrian has died tonight during a collision with a car in a Suffolk town.

Emergency services, including an air ambulance, were called to the A131 Melford Road in Sudbury around 6.45pm.

The crash involved a female pedestrian and a black Vauxhall Corsa.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, a spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said.

The road remains closed between Abbey Road and Chaucer Road while police conduct a collision investigation.

The East of England Ambulance Service was alerted to the collision at 6.43pm and sent two ambulance crews, a rapid response vehicle, an ambulance officer and the East Anglian Air Ambulance to the scene.
