MOTORISTS faced delays in rush-hour today after two motorcyclists were involved in crashes in the same Ipswich road.

A motorcyclist was in collision with a van near Ashcroft Road at about 8.20am and witnesses said the casualty was seen lying in the road.

Then, at 8.27am a motorcyclist came off a moped near Blenheim Road after swerving to avoid a child.

The child is believed to have run off.

Ambulances were called to both scenes but neither of the casualties were seriously injured and they did not need hospital treatment.

Anyone who witnessed the incidents should call Pc Kelly Levett at Martlesham Roads Policing Unit on 01473613500.
