Suffolk Train Crash

A Cambridgeshire man, who was driving a sewage tanker that was involved in a crash with a train last night, has been arrested.

The National Express East Anglia service is thought to have been traveling at between 50-60mph when it hit the tanker at the unmanned crossing in Little Conrad, near Sudbury in Suffolk, yesterday night.

21 people, including the train driver, were hurt as one of the train's carriages was de-railed.

One man remains in a serious condition in Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.

Now, Suffolk Police have confirmed a 38 year old Eastern European man, who lives in Ely, has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving.

Officers are still searching the scene and preparing to move the wreckage of the train and tanker, which was cut in half during the crash.
