A maroon Suzuki Swift and silver Toyota Yaris were involved in a collision in Franciscan Way shortly after 8am.

Suffolk police were called at 8.16am this morning to a 'minor shunt' where there are two police cars, three fire engines and an ambulance on the scene.

A spokesperson for the police said "We not believe that the incident had resulted in any serious injury at this time but will be waiting for more information form the ambulance service to confirm."

Eye witnesses have seen that the woman involved in the accident has been kept inside her car which may be a medical precaution.
