A man had to be freed by a fire crew after getting stuck between bannisters.

The patient, in his forties, suffered cuts to his leg at a house at Roughton, near Cromer as a result of falling down a flight of stairs earlier today.

He was treated at the scene by an East of England Ambulance Service emergency care practitioner and taken to Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital where his condition is not believed to be serious.
