The accident happened just after 10.30am on the A148 between Trap Lane and Water Moor Lane involving a white Volkswagen and a dark blue Ford Focus.

Police closed the road for nearly five hours and a spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service Trust said they sent two ambulance crews, a rapid response vehicle, an ambulance officer and both the Norwich and Cambridgeshire-based air ambulances. They also sent an emergency care practitioner.

They initially treated a woman in her mid-70s for chest pains before taking her to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn by land ambulance.

A primary school aged child was also treated for chest pains and seatbelt related injuries before being flown by air ambulance to the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital.

A woman in her mid-30s and another child were also taken to the N&N but none of the injuries were thought to be life-threatening.

Police reopened the A148 this afternoon at 3.11pm after a full highways investigation was carried out.
