One person has been taken to hospital after a crash involving two lorries and two cars on the A47.

Emergency services were called shortly after 7am on Thursday (August 20) to the stretch of the carriageway at Blofield following the four-vehicle collision. An ambulance service spokesperson said one ambulance and a rapid response vehicle attended the scene.

One patient required treatment and was taken to James Paget University Hospital for further care.

The incident happened in the westbound carriageway and one lane was blocked, leading for a while to long tailbacks.

Officers from Norfolk Police helped clear the road and it was reopened by 9.30am.

Firefighters from Carrow, Sprowston and Acle also attended the collision, making the area safe and helping paramedics.
