A young man has been injured after the car he was driving hit a post and overturned in Ipswich.

Suffolk police were called to reports of an accident near the junction of Holyrood Close and Belstead Road at around 10.30am today.

The injured man, thought to be in his late teens, was driving a silver Vauxhall Corsa, which ended up on its roof.

He was taken to hospital with injuries, which are not thought to be life threatening.

The ambulance service and three fire crews from Ipswich also attended the incident.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said engine oil had spilled onto the road, which would be closed until highways teams cleared it.
