The B1077 near Old Buckenham Primary School was completely blocked by police while waiting for a recovery vehicle.

A police spokesman said minor injuries were received by people in the Toyota and BMW when the collision happened just after 8.30am today (Friday, October 5).

An East of England Ambulance spokesman said a child has been transported to Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital after an ambulance and two rapid response vehicles were called to the scene.

The B1077 is used by drivers travelling between Attleborough and Diss.
