A man has been arrested over a road rage incident in Suffolk when a lorry driver was knocked unconscious when his head was slammed in a cab door.

A 40-year-old man from Ipswich has been questioned on suspicion of assault over the incident in Elm Lane, Copdock.

The 48-year-old trucker was treated for concussion in hospital after the attack at 10:15 GMT on 4 February.

The man arrested on Thursday was bailed to return to the Martlesham Police Investigation Centre on 14 March 2014.

He had stopped his lorry to allow a car to pass, the trucker said.
