Two people have been taken to hospital after a van overturned having collided with a car carrying a woman and three children on the A10.

Three people became trapped after the collision at the main road at Southery shortly before 3.30pm.

The East of England Ambulance Service sent two rapid response vehicles and two ambulance crews to the scene, and treated three patients.

Two were taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for further treatment, but their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening or serious.

A third patient was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

The road was closed for around five hours between the junctions for Lynn Road and Ferry Bank while recovery work took place.

Fire appliances from Thetford and Littleport attended the scene and used enhanced hydraulic rescue equipment to release one person. Assistance was given to the ambulance service and the police and scene safety was carried out along with vehicle stability.
