Norfolk Police were called to the scene of the crash on the B1132 Norwich Road in Hedenham, which is between Ditchingham and Woodton in south Norfolk.

A police spokesman said the accident happened when the white Ford Transit van clipped another vehicle just after 7pm today (Wednesday, July 19). He said nobody as hurt in the collision.

The van ended up spread across both lanes of the road, meaning the whole carriageway has had to be closed for recovery.

Police reported the incident along with the safety message #SlowDown on Twitter.
