A man in his mid-twenties was airlifted to hospital tonight after a crash on the Chilton Hall estate in Stowmarket earlier this evening.

Emergency services were called to the single car incident at 5.30pm, which happened at the junction between Wordsworth Road and Kipling Way.

After it had circled around several times, the East Anglian Air Ambulance was unable to land on the site, and had to land on Chilton Fields at the top of the estate.

The man was then flown to West Suffolk Hospital, after being transported from the site of the incident by ambulance up to the playing fields.

It is not clear what caused the accident.
