A silver Hyundai Matrix car and a red Ford Fiesta collided in Bentley Drive just before 11.40am this morning (Monday).

The road was closed until 2.35pm while officers began an investigation at the scene.

'Police are asking anyone who may have seen either of the vehicles before the collision or the crash itself to call PC 845 Carter at Halesworth Roads Policing Unit on 01986 835300,' the spokesman added.
