The A11 will remain closed throughout this evening following a serious three-vehicle crash.

The incident happened shortly after 10.30am on Wednesday on the road near Elveden, Suffolk police said.

The road was closed in both directions between Barton Mills and Elveden following the crash between a lorry, a Land Rover Defender and a Porsche.

The driver of the Porsche, a woman in her 70s, was airlifted to Addenbrooke's Hospital with serious injuries, where she remains.

The lorry driver, a man in his 50s, was also taken to West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds having suffered injuries that are not believed to be serious.

The crash caused extensive damage to the central reservation barrier and the A11 remains closed both ways between Barton Mills and Elveden whilst an investigation takes and the carriageway is cleared.

The road is expected to remain closed into the early hours of tomorrow.

A diversion route has been put in place, which is as follows:
