A cyclist is reported to have been injured in a collision with a car in Ipswich this morning.

Suffolk police said it had been contacted by the ambulance service at around 8.15am asking for assistance at the scene of a crash involving a cyclist and car in Nacton Road.

The cyclist is thought to have suffered an injured knee but is no longer in the road.

Suffolk police later described the injury as “minor”.

The AA website said traffic was slow due to the accident, which it reported as being near to the junction at Queen’s Way.

By 8.45am, however, emergency services were reported to have dealt with the incident.

An East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust spokesman said: “We sent an ambulance crew to the scene who treated a man with a knee injury.

“The patient was treated at the scene and did not need to be transferred to hospital.”

There is under a month to go until Suffolk Day 2018 and people are being encouraged to get involved to celebrate everything which is great about the county.

Possible plans to arm rural officers look unlikely to be applied any time soon to forces in East Anglia.

An ambulance chief has defended his service after an independent inquiry revealed ambulance delays were not to blame for the deaths of any patients across East Anglia.

A spokesperson for Suffolk police said that they were called to the man, who was trapped in Landseer Park at 7.50am yesterday morning.

A major roadworks scheme which is set to cause chaos on a key route in Ipswich for up to six months saw dozens of people turn out for a meeting on the matter.
