UPDATED: Two injured in traffic accident near school in Beccles

POLICE are appealing for witnesses following a traffic accident in Beccles earlier this week.

A silver Vauxhall Vectra was in a collision with a blue and white Yamaha motorcycle at the junction of Ashmans Road and Grange Road on Wednesday.

Emergency services were called to the accident shortly after 2pm and an ambulance crew from the East of England Ambulance Service (EEAS) treated a 76-year-old lady, who was driving the Vauxhall, and a 19-year-old man riding the motorcycle.

The motorcyclist suffered a minor mouth injury and complained of central neck and hip pain. The female driver had to be freed by fire crews after becoming trapped in her car. She also complained of central neck pain.

A spokesman from the EEAS said: 'There were no life threatening injuries.'
