Lorry crashes into derelict house

A LORRY has ploughed into a derelict house outside the British Sugar factory in Bury St Edmunds.

Police were alerted to the incident at 12.05pm and were joined at the scene by ambulance crews and three fire engines.

The lorry had struck the house on Holderness Road as it was leaving the factory.

It hit a tree and a telegraph pole before crashing into the building, cushioning the blow.

The house is believed to still be structurally sound.

The driver of the lorry suffered bruises in the crash and has been taken to West Suffolk hospital.
