A Norfolk Police spokesman said both occupants were taken to hospital but they are not thought to have suffered serious injuries.

Emergency services were called out at around 4pm on Friday to a property near Two Furlong Hill.

A police spokesman said: “We were called to a single vehicle accident where it appears a vehicle has gone into a house. There were reports two people were trapped in a car and the fire service attended with us.

“It appears that it is linked to a medical episode. Both occupants have been taken to hospital. It is not believed there were serious injuries.

“The building has been left very unstable.”
