Man suffers broken leg

A MAN suffered a broken leg after an accident at a builder’s merchant in Sudbury.

The incident at Martin Buildbase on the Chilton Industrial Estate involved a customer’s car and company vehicle.

As a result of the crash at around 8am on Thursday, the customer suffered a fracture to his lower leg and he was taken to West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds for treatment.

A spokeswoman for the firm said the man was a regular customer and the incident had been investigated.

“There was a collision between a customer’s vehicle and one of our own, which we have investigated,” she said.

“It is our usual practice to do this and we are satisfied no-one was at fault and this was an unfortunate accident.”
