Man critical after heart attack on A47 North Burlingham

A man was taken to hospital after having a heart attack believed to have been caused by a 'driving incident' on the A47 last night (Saturday).

Police are appealing for information after they were called to the man's black people carrier in a ditch near Acle at around 6.30pm.

It is thought that three cars were travelling close to each other on the Yarmouth bound carriageway of the A47 at Blofield, where the dual carriageway goes to a single carriageway at the 50mph zone.

As the cars arrived at another dual carriageway stretch of the same road at North Burlingham the incident occurred between the three vehicles, resulting in the black people carrier leaving the road, and ending up in a ditch.

The other vehicles are described as small and white and small and blue with an X registration plate.
