Tree hits ice cream van at Garboldisham

A tree has smashed down on to an ice cream van in the middle of a Norfolk village.

No one was injured in the accident which happened at about 11.10am today (Sunday) on the A1066 Thetford Road at Garboldisham, between Thetford and Diss.

The large tree covered the road, blocking it, and villagers worked with police officers to clear it.

The tree fell into the main road and away from houses. It happened close to the Hopton Road junction.
