A LORRY driver has been seriously hurt in a collision at the Port of Felixstowe.

An air ambulance crew landed at the port following the crash between two lorries at about 3.30pm.

The incident happened inside the port on the cross-dock road Dyke Road, which runs between the roundabout at Trewlawny House and the entrance to Dock Gate Two.

The air ambulance landed inside the port close to the scene of the crash.

A port spokesman said it was understood the injured driver was taken to hospital by conventional ambulance.

It is not yet clear how badly the man was injured but it is understood his condition was not life-threatening. Suffolk Police are handling the investigation into the incident.

There is a 20mph speed limit on roads inside the 700-acre port complex, Britain’s busiest container terminal.
