A pedestrian remains in a “serious condition” in hopital this morning after being involved in a collision with a car.

Emergency services were called to the incident in Wellington Street around 4.50pm yesterday.

The pedestrian suffered a head injury and the street was closed between the junctions of Bramford Road and Little Bramford Lane while emergency services dealt with the incident at the scene.

The road reopened around 9.25pm.

The collision involved a blue Vauxhall Zafira and a pedestrian.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to the collision to come forward.

A spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said last night that the pedestrian’s injuries were described as serious.

Any witnesses to the incident are being asked to contact Suffolk police on 101, quoting incident number 317 of the June 26.

Alternatively, people can contact the force by emailing, quoting the same reference.

Today we can finally reveal the names of the people selected to be on our first ever Inspiring Women of Suffolk list.

The sea wall of an island off the coast of Suffolk is being lowered by almost half a metre to prevent it flooding in stormy weather.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.
