A man had to be rescued after a truck collapsed on him while he was carrying out repairs.
Firefighters were called to Henry Cross Close in Shipdham, near Dereham, shortly after 9.20am today (Saturday, September 21).
Two Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service crews from the town attended, including the specialist Urban Search and Rescue engine.
A team used pneumatic air bags to release the man from underneath what is believed to have been a Jeep.
They also provided casualty care, alongside a paramedic from the East of England Ambulance Service Trust who checked the man over at the scene.
