The A140 has reopened after being closed in both directions as emergency services dealt with the scene of a crash between a van and a car.

Emergency services were called to the scene in the road in Brome around 2.05pm today.

The vehicles are said to have collided near the junction for the B1118 and a large amount of oil has spilled on the road.

Four fire crews were also called to the scene, although none of the four casualties involved required freeing their vehicles.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police confirmed injuries have been sustained, although could not go into details on their extent.

An East of England ambulance is currently on the scene and one woman is being treated for chest pain, though no injuries are thought to be life threatening or life changing.

A diversion was in place via Castleton Way as police closed the road at the junction with the B1118.

The road was reopened at 5.02pm.
