At least one person has been hurt in a road traffic collision in the aftermath of a Christmas lights switch-on.

One fire crew from Attleborough and the ambulance were called to an incident in High Street, Attleborough, which took place just minutes after the town's Christmas lights were turned on.

Hundreds of people poured down the High Street after the lights were switched on at 4.15pm, with the collision taking place at around 4.25pm.

The fire crew provided casualty care and made the scene safe before the ambulance arrived.
