Members of the public crowded round to help after a man’s foot was struck by a car in Ipswich town centre.

The incident happened in Upper Brook Street at around 2.30pm on Saturday afternoon.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said the crash involved a man on foot and a silver Audi.

It is not clear whether the incident happened on the pavement or in the road.

Will Jefford, who spotted the incident on his way into town, said people were “crowding round” the injured man.

“There was a police car pulled over and an ambulance with its lights on parked on the side of the road by Sainsbury’s,” he said.

“People were crowding around someone on the ground.”
