A road has re-opened after a car and lorry collided on a sharp corner which forced it to close.

Church Lane, between Lowestoft and Hopton, was closed after two vehicles collided shortly after 10.30am.

No one has been injured, but the road was closed and busses were delayed and forced onto alternative routes from 10.30am until 2pm.

One of the first people to arrive at the scene of the collision said: "The front of the car was caved in on the drivers side.

Suffolk Police announced on Twitter that the road was closed from Hopton to Corton, while police dealt with the road traffic collision.

Officers confirmed there have been no injuries and said drivers should "take alternative routes where possible".

However, the road has since re-opened.

A spokesperson for Suffolk Constabulary said: "Emergency services were called shortly after 10.35am to a road traffic collision on Church Lane in the direction of Great Yarmouth involving a car and a lorry. It is believed to be non-injury and Tthe vehicles involved are a Citroen Zara Picasso and a DAF truck."
