Two people involved in a crash on the ring road in the Lakenham area of Norwich this evening escaped without injuries.

A Renault Espace and Chevrolet Kalos collided at Barrett Road at the junction with Long John Hill at about 5pm.

Police, fire and the ambulance all attended and the road was closed for a short time.

A Norfolk Constabulary spokesman said one car had hit the other causing the doors to “crumple” meaning fire fighters were needed to help get the people involved out of their vehicles.

The arrival of the engines from Carrow and Earlham meant the road had to be closed but all emergency services were clear of the scene by 5.30pm.

Both the police and fire service spokesmen confirmed there had been no injuries.
