Emergency services have treated five people for injuries after a collision involving four vehicles on a Norfolk road.

Norfolk Police, Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service, and East of England Ambulance Service were called to the incident on the B1105 just south of Egmere at around 4.55pm.

A spokesman for the ambulance said three ambulances, the East Anglian Air Ambulance, a rapid response vehicle, an ambulance officer, and a Hazardous Area Response Team vehicle treated five patients at the scene.

Two had suspected back injuries, one had a leg injury, one had a suspected chest injury, and one had minor injuries.

Four were taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital King's Lynn, and the other to Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

Three people were trapped in the vehicles and had to be cut loose by Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service, which sent crews from Wells and Fakenham fire stations.

They used hydraulic rescue equipment to extricate the trio.
