A driver was helped out of their car by members of the public after it crashed into a water-filled ditch in south Norfolk.

The accident happened in Colegate End, in Pulham Market, near Diss, just before 5pm today.

Firefighters from Long Stratton, Carrow and Acle, along with support from the Surface Water Rescue Boat from Carrow went to the scene.

But the driver, who was the only person in the car, managed to get out with the aid of members of the public before the brigade arrived.

Firefighters then made the scene and the vehicle safe.
