Three vehicles were involved in a crash which has caused a road to be closed.
Police, ambulance and Norfolk and Fire and Rescue were all called to the incident on Castle Acre Road, Swaffham, shortly after midday today (Satuday, October 19).
A Norfolk Police spokesman said part of the road - which runs underneath the A47, remained closed in both directions.
Fire and rescue crews from Dereham and Massingham used hydraulic rescue equipment to save one person who was trapped in a vehicle, and then helped paramedics with casualty care.
A Norfolk police spokesman said: "We got a report at 12.05pm. It appears the road was blocked. It was involving three vehicles and we are just waiting for the vehicles to be recovered. The road is closed at this time [2.10pm].
