Police are appealing for information after a crash on the A47 at Postwick in which a woman suffered life-changing arm injuries.

The incident happened on the eastbound road, before the Postwick turning, just before 3.50m on Sunday, March 27.

A black Renault Clio left the road, crashing with the barrier and coming to rest on its roof.

A driver, a woman in her 20s, suffered the injuries and was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

At 6.30am, the westbound stretch of road had reopened, while the eastbound carriageway reopened at 8.20am.

Three fire crews, from Carrow, Earlham and Sprowston, were called to the scene.

Officers are keen to hear from witnesses.
