A woman had to be cut free from a car after a crash on one of the main roads into Norwich city centre.
The crash, on St Stephens Road, near Quasar Elite, happened at 10.15am and involved a white Hyundai and a Spar lorry.
Firefighters had to cut free a woman, believed to be in her 40s, from the Hyundai, who was trapped in the car following the crash.
