Two people were hurt in a crash when a driver had to swerve to avoid a car which was overtaking - and police are searching for the motorist who failed to stop at the scene.

The crash was on the North Walsham Road on the edge of Norwich, close to the ground of Norwich Rugby Club.

A Fiat 500 travelling towards Norwich was forced to take avoiding action, as a result of an overtaking car travelling in the opposite direction.

The Fiat then crashed into a Vauxhall Astra which was travelling behind the car which overtook, with both drivers slightly hurt in the collision.

Officers believe the car which overtook was a blue Ford Ka. The driver did not stop at the scene and Norfolk police want to track them down.
