At just after 10pm on Sunday, August 27, a dark-coloured estate car was reported travelling down Kitchener Road when the driver lost control of the vehicle and veered off the road into a wall outside two homes on the adjoining Northgate Street.

Two crews of firefighters from Great Yarmouth and Gorleston attended the scene, along with police officers and paramedics.

The incident left two homes affected, with the walls outside both homes severely damaged. One of the homes also has a front window and door boarded up.

A witness said there was large police presence at the incident, as well as several members of the public standing and watching the aftermath.
