Emergency services were called to a crash between a van and a mini bus on Norwich Road in Mattishall around 9am this morning.

The road near the New Lane junction is blocked still but is expected to open in the next half an hour.

Fire crews from Dereham and Earlham were called to the scene where they rescued people trapped in what police have described as 'a silver panelled van'.

That vehicle is thought to have gone in to the bank and is now on its side awaiting recovery.

There were four casualties from that vehicle, and none reported from the mini bus.
