Four were injured and one trapped inside a car following a crash that blocked the A47 Acle Straight near Great Yarmouth.

The A47 between Acle and Yarmouth was blocked for almost two hours following a two-car crash near the Halvergate turning at about 1.35pm today.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service said four people were injured; one female and two adults were treated at the scene before two of those involved were taken to the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston for further treatment.

Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service sent two crews to the scene. A spokesman said they used hydraulic rescue equipment to release casualties and provided scene safety.

The road reopened at about 3.30pm.
