A woman has been taken to hospital with a suspected broken rib after firefighters rescued her from a vehicle following a crash in Swaffham.

The A1065 Castleacre Road between the Bear’s Lane junction and the A47 junction was closed between 7.22am and 9am after the collision between a van and a red Masda salon.

Firefighters freed the woman, who is believed to be in her 50s, and she was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn by land ambulance.
