Two people were taken to hospital. It is not believed the injuries are serious.

A Suffolk Police spokesman said the car was on its way to Adastral Close in the town, responding to reports of criminal damage after a golf buggy had crashed into some gates in the estate at some point after 3pm.

Bury Road was closed until about 6pm.
