A main road through the region was closed to traffic for more than two hours after a crash between two vehicles late this morning.

At around 11.30am, a white Skoda and a silver Nissan X-Trail were involved in a crash on the A1075 at Shipdham, which saw one of the motorists suffer a cut to the head.

Emergency services attended the scene of the crash, which happened on the Watton-bound lane and the road was completely blocked as a result.
