The incident at the hotel, which is opposite the college Suffolk One on the A1214, is thought to have occurred about 3pm.

“We were called to the Holiday Inn Ipswich following reports of a man suffering a serious medical emergency,” a spokesman said.
“The man was transported by road ambulance to Ipswich Hospital in a serious condition.”
Emergency vehicles were seen leaving the car park at about 3.20pm.
There are no reports of excessive traffic at the traffic light-controlled at the junction next to the hotel, the intersection of cars from Hadleigh, the A12 and Ipswich town centre.
