Turnout and CON majority
It's been confirmed that a man has died after a car crashed into a wall in Long Melford.
A red Toyota Yaris hit the wall on Westgate Street shortly before 05:45.
Three occupants of the car - two men and a woman - were taken to West Suffolk Hospital for treatment. The front passenger, a man in his 20s, died in hospital. The female rear passenger sustained serious injuries, but they are not thought to be life-threatening.
The driver, a 26-year-old man from Ipswich, suffered minor injuries. He has been arrested and taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning.
The road has been reopened.

Needham Market residents could be voting in a different Parliamentary constituency at the next election, if plans to change the electoral boundaries are approved by MPs.
The proposals from the Boundary Commission are designed to even out the numbers of voters in each seat, while reducing the number of MPs from 650 to 600.
Needham, along with Combs, Battisford, Ringshall and Great Bricett would move from the Bury St Edmunds seat to the seat of Central Suffolk & North Ipswich.
That in turn loses a bit of Ipswich north of Colchester Road to the Ipswich constituency.
Suffolk Coastal gains Hasketon and Great and Little Bealings, but loses Pettistree, Stratford St Andrew and Farnham.

Bury St Edmunds kick-off a run of fixtures tomorrow that will test how far they've come under new coach Ollie Smith.
After winning their last four games in National League Two South, the Wolfpack are at sixth-placed Redruth.
They also have to face second-placed Taunton and Canterbury, who are fourth, this month.
"Redruth are always going to be tough at home," Smith told me. "They've been around this division for many years now.
"They're a typical Cornish side who'll be up for a battle, probably very forward orientated, with a few stars in the backs, which seems to be a recipe that works in that part of the country.
"I think in two games' time we're going to have a good idea of where this group is at. It'll show up more than these first five games have shown."
A new £15m relief road for Bury St Edmunds has been offficially opened.
The Eastern Relief Road, which was first announced seven years ago, links Skyliner Way in Moreton Hall to Junction 45 of the A14.
The project was delayed because of legal discussions over a small piece of land at Sow Lane.
Colin Noble, Conservative leader of Suffolk County Council, said: "There's 67 acres of new business park land and what we're hoping [is] over a period of time new businesses will come here, new factories will grow and open, and up to 15,000 jobs will be created."

A train carrying a crane has arrived in Manea, Cambridgeshire, to start the process of removing derailed wagons that are blocking the line.
A number of carriages left the line after a freight train derailed on Monday afternoon.
Engineers worked through the night to repair the tracks so the crane could arrive.
Another train with empty wagons has also made the journey so goods on the derailed carriages can be transferred over.
The total time to remove all the wagons from the track is expected to take 48 hours, with a workforce of about 25.
While the work takes place, services between Stansted and Birmingham, Norwich and Liverpool and Ipswich and Peterborough will be affected, with replacement buses due to operate until at least Sunday.
The most senior Church of England clergyman in Suffolk has condemned the attack on Muslims leaving a Ramadan prayer meeting in Finsbury Park, London, earlier today.
The Rt Revd Martin Seeley, Bishop of the St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocese, said terror cannot be allowed to win.
"I am appalled at the callous and brutal terrorist attack on Muslim worshippers in Finsbury Park," he said.
"My heart goes out to the victims, the bereaved, their families and community. This is attack on all of us, on our values and our communities, whatever our faith.
"The responses to the terrible incidents in recent weeks, and engagement up and down the country in the Great Get Together this past weekend honouring the work of Jo Cox, all show we are bound together in a common humanity characterised by tolerance, generosity and kindness.
"People want to live and work together in harmony, for the good of all.
"The terrorists cannot change that, and we must confront the evil and hatred they live by wherever it exists."
Conservative's Jo Churchill, who has retained her Bury St Edmunds seat, has taken to social media to thank her voters for putting their "faith" in her.
She won 36,794 votes compared to Labour candidate Bill Edwards's 18,363.
