Police were called at 9.10am this morning to reports of a car transporter in collision with the central reservation between the A1075 and Larling crossroads.

As a result a number of cars came off the transporter and onto the road.

The East of England Ambulance Service sent two ambulance crews to the scene of the crash and treated one person for head and neck pain and a woman for facial injuries. Both were taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for further treatment but their injuries are not thought to be serious.

The northbound carriageway has reopened but one lane remains closed southbound for on-going recovery work. Police have warned drivers to expect delays in the area.
