Police were called this morning to Bracondale, in Norwich, after a silver Ford Transit van rolled and crashed into a wall.

The driver of the van, a man aged in his 40s, has been taken to hospital with a head injury - though a police spokesman said it was not believed to be serious.

The impact left the van on it side with smashed window, with police on scene clearing debris and controlling passing traffic.

The incident resulted in heavy tailbacks while police tended to the scene.
