Fire crews from Earlham and Carrow were called to the scene at 8.30 this morning to help a person out of a car following the crash on William Frost Way between a Volkswagen Polo and a Vauxhall Mokka.

The East of England Ambulance Service were called to treat a woman in her late 30s for minor injuries and she was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for further treatment.

There were long delays on the route, especially for residents of the Queen's Hill Estate, as the only road that serves the estate was blocked.

Mum Amy Laskey was returning to Queen's Hills after taking her son to school. Her two-year-old daughter was in the car with her. 'I had to pull into a lay-by,' she said. 'I had no nappies, no money – it's time they sorted out the access to Queen's Hills. There must be loads of mums in the same situation.'

The Evening News launched a campaign last year to demand action over travel chaos at Queen's Hill. One option that was considered was using a second access to the estate, linking to Ringland Lane.
