The driver of the van, a man believed to be in his 40s, passed out prior to emergency services arriving.

He is now conscious and breathing and has been taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for further treatment.

Emergency services were called at around 10am to the Esso garage on Mile Cross Lane, after a white Vauxhall van hit a petrol pricing sign and a lamppost.

A police spokesperson said it was also believed a second vehicle was involved - but did not collide with the sign.
