A car overturned after leaving the road in Whitwell this morning.

The single-vehicle crash happened at 7.35am on Whitwell Common, and the male driver of the car escaped without injury.

Fire crews from Reepham and Earlham were called out and carried out scene safety.

A police spokesman said the road had not been blocked and that recovery of the vehicle was under way.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service said: 'We sent a rapid response vehicle to the scene. The casualty was a man who had got out of the car by himself and was walking around. He was not injured, so crews carried out an assessment at the scene.'
