Police, firefighters and paramedics were called to the IMO Car Wash on North Street, King's Lynn, just after 2.15pm yesterday.

A police spokesman said one woman was taken to hospital as a precaution, but no-one suffered serious injury in the incident. The car knocked down part of a wall and came to rest blocking the exit from the car wash.

The crash appears to have occurred as the car was leaving the facility, on the junction with John Kennedy Road.

Norfolk fire and rescue service said firefighters used small gear to release one casualty from the car. Part of a wall had collapsed onto the vehicle.
