A woman has been taken to hospital following a serious accident on the A11 near Attleborough which closed the northbound carriageway.

Emergency services were called at 7.15am after the collision, which was between an Audi A3 and a lorry.

She was treated at the scene before being taken by land ambulance to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for further treatment. The air ambulance medics travelled with the patient en route to hospital.

A spokesperson for the East of England Ambulance Service said her injuries are 'potentially serious' but are not thought to be life-threatening.
