Update: Police release details of crash on A140 near Tasburgh that saw driver hospitalised with leg injuries

A 39-year-old man was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital this morning following a three-vehicle crash on the A140 near Tasburgh.

Traffic on the A140 Ipswich Road was heavily congested this morning because of the crash, involving two cars and a van at around 6.30am.

The crash happened between the B1135 Hempnall turn and Hill Farm and was causing queues to stretch as far back as Long Stratton, before clearing by 10am.

Two fire crews, from Long Stratton and Carrow, attended to make the vehicle and scene safe, administering casualty care and using granules to deal with spillages.

The cars involved were a blue Vauxhall Vectra and a blue Nissan Micra, along with a white Ford Transit van - one of which ended up in a ditch.

A Norfolk police statement said: 'The Vectra was travelling towards Norwich when it was involved in a collision with the Nissan, which had been travelling towards Long Stratton.

'The Transit van, which had also been travelling towards Long Stratton, then collided with the Vectra.
