Calls have been made for further safety improvements following the latest accident at a busy north Norfolk junction.
Two cars crasshed close to the A148 crossroads near Sheringham Park at 2.30pm on Sunday.
No-one was injured in the crash, which involved a Mercedes CLA and BMW 330.
Passer-by Rob Templeman photographed the damaged BWM on the side of the road following the accident.
He said: 'The junction is a nightmare, there are going to be countless more crashes there all summer. I have sent the pictures to (North Norfolk MP) Norman Lamb, he is aware of the problem, but doesn't seem to have the power to do anything about it.'
Holt teenager Martha Seaward died when she was hit by a lorry close to the junction in 2014.
