Neighbours living along Colman Road, which is a 30mph zone, said they were woken up by a loud bang shortly before 7am.

The vehicle had left a trail of destruction outside the properties, ripping up hedges and damaging brickwork.

It also smashed the front window of one home, which has since been boarded up.

Janet Chettleburgh, 70, who lives nearby, said: 'We were still in bed when we heard this almighty crash. I thought it was a lorry going past at first, but it was not until I saw the car's headlights that I realised what had happened.'

Norfolk police tweeted that fire and ambulance services attended the scene and that no one was seriously injured.

The accident happened between the Corie Road and George Borrow Road junctions.
