He was left pinned under the windscreen after the vehicle overturned.

Police said one person suffered slight injuries in the crash, which happened on the A134 near Northwold at 6.40pm on Thursday.

They tweeted: “Little lad survived being pinned under windscreen of rolled car. Rescued by us, #NorfolkFire & local vet.”

Firefighters cut the little dog - believed to be an eight-week-old border collie cross - free from the car as vets rushed to the scene.

Simon Power, co-owner of Downham Market-based Vets One Group said: “We took a phone call from police around 6.30 last night. We sent two vets and a veterinary nurse, we were expecting a horror story.

“When we got there the firemen had just cut the puppy out from underneath the windscreen. He showed no physical damage at all.”
