A crew from Heacham and the urban search and rescue unit were called to the house on Collingwood Close at around 5.30pm on Tuesday, December 4.

Just one vehicle was involved in the collision but as the damage to the property was extensive, emergency services used specialist equipment to prop up or ‘shore up’ to make the building safe.

A spokesman for Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said: “It showcased the skills available to us in West Norfolk, it was a job well done.”

Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service are on the look out for anyone who would consider whether they could be an on-call firefighter, the role offers flexible working hours and could suit people with childcare responsibilities, as you are on call from home or a workplace.
