A car passenger has been injured and a lane of the A12 closed after an accident near Belstead this afternoon.

Suffolk Constabulary reported that a blue Toyota Rav 4 and silver Ford Fiesta were involved in a collision at around 1.40pm.

The drivers were described as “walking wounded” but the passenger in one of the vehicles was taken to hospital with more serious injuries.

One of the northbound lanes near the Belstead fly-over has been closed causing traffic to back-up on the way into Ipswich. Both vehicles required recovery and the crash barrier was also damaged.
