A two-vehicle crash on a dual carriageway in Suffolk caused traffic delays for rush-hour drivers tonight.

Police were called to the A14 eastbound in Bury St Edmunds, just after the Sainsbury’s turnoff, around 4.50pm to reports of a collision between a BMW car and a Transit van.

A spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said the motorists were believed to have suffered minor injuries.

However, both vehicles were badly damaged and required recovering from the scene.
