Children had to be rescued from a burning car by a member of the public following a crash involving a bus on Saturday evening.

Emergency services were called to a serious crash on the A149 between a bus and a car on Saturday evening.

According to Norfolk Accident Rescue Service (NARS) paramedic Al Moore, 52, a member of the public was on his way to work when he saw the car on fire.

The NARS volunteer, from Sculthorpe, said: "He was in so quickly he stopped it being much more serious. He dragged out the driver and a young lad and they were both taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn. It was a heroic act, plain and simple."

One of the casualties was airlifted to hospital by the East England Air Ambulance.
