A man has died after a serious crash at Wortwell, near Harleston, which saw three others - including a young child - injured.

Emergency services were called to the A143 just after 4.30pm yesterday afternoon after the two-car crash.

The male driver of a silver Peugeot 206 was taken by air ambulance to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, but died last night, police confirmed.

The female driver of a red Seat Ibiza was also airlifted to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge with serious leg injuries. She is now said to be in a stable condition.

A man in the second car was taken to West Suffolk Hospital by land ambulance suffering from serious leg injuries, while a young child was also taken to West Suffolk Hospital with injuries which are not believed to be life-threatening.

Two other passengers in the second car, a man and a young child, were taken to the West Suffolk Hospital with minor injuries.

The A143 was closed between Bungay and Harleston to allow officers to conduct accident investigation work, but it has now reopened.
