Emergency services were called at 9.20am to the A1064 near the Tower Road junction to reports of an overturned vehicle - a silver Mercedes CLK.

The man was then taken by road to the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston for further care.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance NHS Trust said his injuries are thought to be serious, but not life-threatening.
