A woman in her late teens had to be cut from her car after a two-vehicle crash near Little Plumstead.

Emergency services, including police and firefighters, were called to Norwich Road, at just after 5pm yesterday.

Two cars - a silver Mini and a black Mercedes - were involved in the crash, on the road between Broad Lane and Salhouse Road.

Firefighters from Sprowston, Carrow and Earlham went to the scene. They cut off the roof to free the woman who was trapped in the silver car, which had also struck a tree.

A spokesman for East of England Ambulance Service said two ambulance crews, a rapid response vehicle and an ambulance officer had attended. The East of England Air Ambulance also sent a response car to the scene.

The spokesman said the woman had suffered a broken leg and was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital by ambulance.

Another casualty, a man in his early 20s, who had suffered minor injuries, was also taken to the same hospital where he was later discharged.
