Police were called to the scene of the crash between a car and a bicycle in Yarmouth Road at 7.20pm on Sunday, December 1.

The crash happened near a crossing, which meant the adjoining Bramford Road was also closed whilst the immediate incident was dealt with.

Closures stretched into the night and Bramford Road was only reopened at 9pm, whilst Yarmouth Road remained shut for hours afterwards.

Suffolk police have now confirmed that the male cyclist was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, where he remains in a critical condition.

Witnesses said there was police tape cordoning off the site, as well as evidence markers across the pavements and road.

They also reported that they were turned away from the scene, which several police cars and ambulances attended.
