Suffolk Constabulary has closed the A143 between Walsham Road and Stow Lane while a serious collision investigation team works to establish what happened. The crash happened shortly before 8.10pm today.

A spokesman for the police force said five people were involved in the incident, but they had suffered only minor injuries. The driver of the lorry was arrested on suspicion of drink driving. The spokesman added the East of England Ambulance Service had also attended the scene, and there were no horses being transported in the horsebox at the time of the collision.

The lorry is said to have partially left the road as a result of the crash while the horsebox, a long-wheelbase Iveco vehicle and not a trailer being towed, ended up on its roof.

The road is expected to be closed for several hours while the police investigation into the collision takes place.
