Emergency services were called to the two-car crash, which involved a white Mercedes van and a silver Peugeot, at about 9.50am today.

It is thought that the woman had broken down by the side of the road when her car was hit from behind.

The car rolled with her still inside - but she miraculously suffered just chest pains, which are not believed to be serious.

A photo from Norfolk Police shows the huge damage to the back of the car.
