Firefighters, police and an ambulance were called to a two-car crash at Long John Hill in Lakenham, at the junction with Barrett Road, at just after 1.30pm on Sunday.

Emergency services also went to a two-vehicle crash, in the same road, just after 4.30pm on Saturday.

That crash blocked the road near the junction with Huxley Road.

Following that crash, Chris Riches and Kathi Ritchie set up a campaign group on Twitter called Cut Lakenham Accidents Now, @LakenhamCLAN, calling for improvements to the junction.
