Part of the A1075 was closed in both directions following a crash in which a person had to be cut from their car.

Emergency services were called at 5.25am this morning to the road at Great Hockham, close to Watton.

One person had to be cut from their car by crews from Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service.

Norfolk police said a person has been taken to hospital with a head injury.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service Trust said: “Two ambulances were dispatched to treat two patients. One was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for further treatment.”

Highways were called to the scene due to oil on the road.

The road was shut between Great Hockham and Wretham and was reopened at 9.30am.
