Emergency services were called to a single-vehicle crash in mid Norfolk in which a telegraph pole was damaged and one person suffered injuries.

Police, fire and ambulance crews were on the scene after the incident in Norwich Road, Dereham, which happened just before 10.40am on Thursday, October 8.

A Norfolk police spokesman said a Kia had hit the pole, and the driver, a woman in her 70s, suffered minor injuries.

A spokesman from the East of England Ambulance Service said: “We sent an ambulance and a rapid response car to the scene.

“We transferred one patient to Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.”
