Thorpe Market Road is now open again in both directions after the crash, which happened around 3pm today (Tuesday, May 29).

A black Ford Kuga SUV travelling south left the road and smashed into a low brick wall at the front of a property.

It was earlier believed the vehicle flipped onto its roof, however, this was not the case.

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service said a woman in her 70s was injured and had to be rescued from the vehicle by Norfolk Fire and Rescue.
