The A140 at Roughton has reopened after a two-car smash left a patient with a suspected broken leg.

The crash took place at 6.44am this morning after a car rolled off the road outside Roughton Service Station.

Two ambulance crews as well as a first response unit and an Air Ambulance car were sent to the scene, alongside Cromer and Sheringham's fire crews.

The firemen then used hydraulic rescue equipment to free one casualty from their car.

Police shut the road in both directions, before reopening it shortly after 9am.
