Long delays had been reported across Lowestoft earlier this morning (Wednesday) following the rush hour crash – but as of 10.20am, the bridge was clear and traffic was flowing once more in both directions.

Police and the East of England Ambulance Service were called to the scene after the crash happened about 8.45am this morning (Wednesday).

A police spokesman said: 'The motorcyclist may have sustained some injuries to his knee and fingers, but the injuries are not thought to be serious.'

The moped was in collision with a Ford Fiesta car on the Bascule Bridge.

The crash, which happened close to the Royal Thoroughfare, led to the A12 Tom Crisp Way in Lowestoft being blocked and queuing traffic in both directions between the A12 Horn Hill junction and the A12 Station Square junction,

However the bridge was cleared by 10.20am. A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service Trust said: 'Two ambulances were called to a road traffic collision involving a car and a motorbike in Lowestoft at 8.45am today (September 28).
