A woman has been airlifted to hospital following a crash involving a HGV at Haddiscoe.

Emergency services were called to the village, north of Beccles, at around 3.30pm today to reports of a two-vehicle crash.

Police had closed the A143, between the Station Road junction and the B1074 Herringfleet Road junction, but it was re-opened shortly after 9pm.

A spokesman for the ambulance service said a woman in her 50s suffered leg, chest and pelvis injuries.

She is said to be in a serious but stable condition and was flown to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital by air ambulance.

The spokesman said a second person was also treated for chest injuries and taken to the James Paget Hospital in a stable condition.

Fire crews from Great Yarmouth, Gorleston and Loddon used hydraulic equipment to remove one casualty from a vehicle.
