Two people have been taken to hospital after a car transporter crashed into the central reservation on the A11 at Thetford, with a number of cars coming off the lorry.

Police were called at 9.10am this morning to reports of a car transporter in collision with the central reservation between the A1075 and Larling crossroads.

As a result a number of cars came off the transporter and onto the road. It is not known at this stage whether any other vehicles were involved.

The East of England Ambulance Service sent two ambulance crews to the scene of the crash and treated one person for head and neck pain and a woman for facial injuries. Both were taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for further treatment but their injuries are not thought to be serious.

Both carriageways of the A11 were affected by the crash but the northbound carriageway has now reopened. The southbound road is still closed whilst emergency services clear the scene and it is expected to be closed for some time.
