Police, ambulance and fire crews were called to the scene on Round House Way, close to the junction with the A11, at around 8.45am on Monday, February 17.

A Mercedes and a Vauxhall were involved in the crash, with the Vauxhall overturning and coming to rest on its roof.

One person trapped in his car had to be rescued by the fire service, and was then taken by ambulance to Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for treatment.

Police confirmed that the road was not blocked, but traffic was moving more slowly than usual, according to passer-by JP Asher.

Fire crews from Earlham, Carrow and Sprowston were called to the scene, where they used hydraulic rescue equipment to release a person trapped inside one of the cars, who was then passed into the care of the ambulance service.

The Vauxhall was moved to the middle of the roundabout, so that traffic could move freely once again.
