Two people have been treated by paramedics after their car flipped onto its roof during a police chase in Lowestoft.

Officers attempted to flag down the silver hatchback car at around 8pm on Sunday evening. It failed to stop and led the patrol car on a chase through the Suffolk town in icy conditions. But it soon came to an abrupt stop just half a mile after being signalled to stop by police, hitting two parked vehicles and flipping onto its roof.

Two people were removed from the car and treated for minor injuries by paramedics at the scene.

The driver was taken to hospital for a check-up and the road was closed for two and a half hours.

Suffolk Police are appealing for witnesses to the crash as they investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident.
