A 70-year-old man remains in a stable condition in hospital following an accident on the Acle Straight last month.

The man was airlifted to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge with serious head and arm injuries following the accident on Friday, October 23, which involved three cars and an Argos lorry.

The accident took place at 7.20pm on the Acle side of the Halvergate Junction.

It is thought that the Argos lorry was travelling towards Great Yarmouth while the three cars: a grey Saab 93 with a trailer, a grey BMW 320 and a black Chevrolet Spark were heading in the opposite direction.

The Argos lorry and the Chevrolet both overturned and went into a ditch.

The driver of the Argos lorry was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital with a leg injury but was discharged the following day.

Four other people involved in the accident have also been released from the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston after suffering minor injuries.
