Six fire crews were called to two separate crashes in a village in just over half an hour.

At around 5.21pm this afternoon (Wednesday, January 2), fire engines from Watton, Hingham and Dereham attended a road traffic collision in Norwich Road, Carbrooke.

Firefighters cut free two casualties and assisted the police and ambulance.

Around 32 minutes later, at 5.53pm, fire crews from Attleborough, Thetford and East Harling attended a crash in Caston Road, some four miles from Norwich Road.

Emergency services assisted a lorry that had come off the road and into a ditch. Although an ambulance was called the driver did not receive serious injuries. The lorry was recovered from the ditch at around 9pm.
