A 76-year-old woman was killed yesterday afternoon in a car crash on Diss Road in Garboldisham.

Three cars were involved in the accident which took place at 3pm, about 650 metres from the junction of Harrow Lane.

A red Volvo collided head-on with a grey Peugeot 307 estate, and a red Ford Transit van was damaged after swerving to avoid them.

Fire crews from East Harling and Thetford arrived on the scene to free a man and a woman who were trapped in the wreckage.
