Rush-hour traffic was delayed on a major route just outside Norwich after a five-car crash this morning.

The accident happened just after 8.10am on the King's Lynn-bound A47, just off the Trowse junction.

Paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service Trust were called and spokesman for the trust said a woman, believed to be in her 50s, was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital with shoulder pain.

Her condition was not thought to be life-threatening, according to the ambulance service spokesman.

The cars involved in the crash were two Ford FiestaSs, Saab 9-3, Toyota Starlet and Mazda 3.

A Norfolk police spokesman said officers were called to the scene of the crash, which caused traffic problems for many motorists during rush-hour.

He said the five cars were moved onto a lay-by and the busy road was clear by 9.20am.
