Two people were injured and one person was trapped in an accident that closed a South Norfolk road.

Emergency services were called to a two vehicle crash on the B1143 between Pulham St Mary and Starston at shortly before 6pm on Tuesday.

Fire crews from Harleston and Long Stratton attended the accident involving a car and a people carrier type vehicle on the rural road, known as The Street.

Firefighters used hydraulic rescue equipment to release one person who was trapped. However both drivers and passengers in the vehicles escaped with minor injuries.

The road was closed in both directions to allow rescue services to deal with the accident before being re-opened after the scene had been made safe.
