Two people were taken to hospital with back and neck injuries after a two-car collision between Norwich and Great Yarmouth.

That carriageway was closed until around 10.55pm last night.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service said two adults were freed from their respective vehicles.

This was done by Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service, which sent crews from Carrow, Sprowston, and Earlham fire stations.
