Emergency services have been dealing with multiple collisions this morning as icy roads led to treacherous conditions.

One person had to be cut from a car after crashing into a tree on the A148 around 5.45am, and the road was blocked for around three hours while the air ambulance and fire service attended.

Two fire appliances from Fakenham used hydraulic rescue equipment to rescue the person from the car.

The air ambulance attended the scene to deal with the casualty, but the injuries are not thought to be life changing or life-threatening.

Just before 6.30am, a Seat Ibiza and a Volkswagen Polo collided on Mill Road at Salhouse, causing the road to close in both directions.

The scene was cleared just after 7am, with police saying the incident had been 'due to the weather conditions'.

No injuries were reported.
