A car carrying Christmas presents was destroyed after a crash on the A47.

Breckland police tweeted just before 10pm on Wednesday to say officers had attended the three-vehicle crash on the A47 earlier that night.

They said one family had been taken to hospital, while their car, which contained Christmas gifts, was “ruined”.

But they said an officer later delivered the gifts to a relative living nearby, and that there were no serious injuries sustained in the crash.

Norfolk police confirmed they were called to the incident just after 6pm on Wednesday , after a three-vehicle crash involving a Jaguar, a Volkswagen Golf and a Vauxhall Corsa.

They said those taken to hospital suffered slight injuries.

Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service were also on scene, and rescued one person from a vehicle.
