The A12 has reopened after a crash near to where Latitude Festival was being held over the weekend forced the road to close.

Emergency services were called at about 11am on Monday to reports of a two-vehicle crash on the northbound carriageway at Blythburgh, near Henham Park.

A diversion route had been put in place and motorists were urged to avoid the area, Suffolk police said.

An ambulance crew and three fire appliances attended the scene.

Suffolk police later confirmed one person had been taken to James Paget Hospital in Gorleston, near Great Yarmouth, for treatment.

However, a later post on Twitter said there were no serious injuries following the crash.

Police thanked motorists for their patience and the road was reopened shortly before 3.30pm.
