A11 reopens following crash

Have your say

THE A11 towards Thetford was closed for nearly four hours this morning after a crash involving a lorry and a van.

The crash happened just past the Five Ways roundabout shortly after 5am. Firefighters had to cut free two men, one who was trapped in the VW Caddy van and the other in the blue lorry which had ended up on the verge.

Both were taken to West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds – their condition is not thought to be life threatening.

The road, which was completely blocked following the accident, reopened at 8.55am.
