The East of England Ambulance Service has said he was taken to West Suffolk Hospital for further care, and a police spokesman said the shoulder and back injuries sustained were 'not believed to be serious'.

The road, which was closed between Black Bear Lane and the Grosvenor Yard car park, has now been re-opened.
