A man in his 50s was pulled from a burning car after it left the road near Ipswich.

The crash happened just before 4pm today on the B1080 at Holbrook.

It is thought a relative of the man pulled him from the burning wreckage of his Mazda Premacy Sport.

Paramedics and an air ambulance crew were called to the scene. It is not yet clear how badly the man was hurt in the collision but he was conscious and breathing when emergency services arrived.

The road remains closed at the junction of the B1456 Main Road.
