Three people fled the scene of a crash in Norwich on Tuesday night where a car ended up on its roof.

Emergency services were called to the entrance of Castle Mall car park at around 9.45pm, and police, an ambulance crew, and the East Anglian Air Ambulance rapid response car were at the scene.

Barriers on the left hand carriageway, going in to the car park, were crushed while a black Mercedes C220 was on its roof on the other side of the road.

No one was injured but a Norfolk Police spokesman said three people had fled the scene and officers were searching the area for them.

The description of one of the people was given as a white man, in his mid 20s. He is thought to be around 5'8 and of stocky build, wearing a baseball cap, t-shirt, and shorts.
