Police were called to Foxhall Road, Ipswich, just after 12noon.

As well as officers, ambulance and fire crews have been in attendance. A police spokesman said the firefighters had worked to remove roof of the man’s silver Jaguar X-Type.

That car was involved in a collision with a red Ford Focus which had caused the road to close, but has since been re-opened.

Police said the man has been taken to hospital after suffering from shortness of breath and chest pains, and could not rule out “life-threatening” or “life-changing” injuries.

  • Do Suffolk police no longer issue headgear? In the photos there is a Pcso and an officer bareheaded. Only one of them is wearing a hi-viz top. Years ago, you could tell who is who from a distance but now it is a case of "is it the police, is it a delivery man or a road worker etc ?". So much for high visibility police patrols to reassure the public.

  • Well from the photo it looked like it closed near the co-op opposite brooks and wood, you're right though a little more info would've been key here.

  • Foxhall Road is 4.5 miles long, from the top of Grove Lane to the roundabout on the A12. Is the road closed for the whole of its length.
