The woman who died, a 77-year-old from the Halstead area of Essex, was a passenger in the Astra.

The drivers of the vehicles, both men in their 70s, were taken to West Suffolk Hospital.

The driver of the Astra sustained a fractured sternum and the driver of the Range Rover sustained minor injuries.

Both men remain in hospital.

Police believe this stretch of road was busy at the time of the collision and are asking anyone who may have seen either of the vehicles prior to the crash to get in touch as soon as possible.

It is likely there were drivers that could not stop at the time so officers are keen to speak to anyone who may have been in the area at around 2.30pm - 2.40pm.

Witnesses are asked to call the Serious Collision Investigation Team at Suffolk Police on 101 quoting reference CAD 247 of Tuesday January 26.
