A car veered so far off the road this morning that it required a police search to locate it.
Police were called to the A12 in Gorleston at around 9am, after reports of a car coming off the road near the Lowestoft Road roundabout.
However, when officers arrived, they could hear the alarm, but the vehicle was nowhere to be seen.
After placing a diversion in place, they then searched the verge, finding the vehicle - a blue Vauxhall Corsa - trapped in a hedge around six metres off of the road - with its driver still inside.
The driver, who was female, escaped without serious injury and the vehicle was recovered at 10.53am.
A spokesman for the ambulance service said: 'A rapid response vehicle was sent and treated a woman, believed to be in her 20s. 'Fortunately it appears she was uninjured in the incident so was not taken to hospital.'
