A motorist had to be rescued from their car this morning following a crash with another vehicle on the A47 this morning.

At around 9.52am, a Ford Focus and a VW Sharan people carrier were involved in a crash near the road's junction with the B1140 at North Burlingham, travelling towards Norwich.

Emergency services were called to the scene, with firefighters, paramedics and police all in attendance.

Three fire crews attended, from Earlham, Carrow and Gorleston stations, with firefighters forced to free a person who was trapped in one of the vehicles.

The road's westbound carriageway is partially blocked while emergency services continue to attend to the scene, with traffic reported to be slow as a result.
