Woman and child taken to hospital after coach braked suddenly

A woman in her 40s suffered head injuries and a child had to go to hospital as a precaution after a coach braked suddenly today.

The coach - carrying 55 children and five adults - was travelling on the The Street, Little Snoring, near Fakenham, when it braked sharply at the junction with the main A148 Fakenham-Cromer road.

A woman in her 40s went to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King's Lynn, with head injuries and a child went as a precaution.

The road was closed from 12.20 to 1.40pm.

Police said it was not known what caused the sudden braking and no other vehicles were involved.

It is unclear where the coach was from or where it was heading.
