A man who was hit by a train is recovering in hospital after losing his arm.

Jason Halliday, from Great Cornard, was struck by a train near the Ladybridge pedestrian crossing in Cornard Road, Sudbury, earlier this month.

The 45-year-old was hit by the 9.15pm train service travelling from Marks Tey to Sudbury on May 6 in an incident which resulted in the loss of his right arm.

Emergency services were called to the scene, with the collision taking place only 70 metres from Sudbury railway station. Mr Halliday was taken to West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds for treatment.

He has since been transferred to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.
