The single vehicle accident happened this afternoon at the roundabout at the junction of Denmark Street and Park Road.

Constable Godbold said the woman had been driving west down Denmark Street, intending to turn right into Stanley Road, when the red Ford Ka clipped a curb and flipped over.

A crew from Diss fire station rescued the woman from the car and she was then taken to hospital by ambulance.

PC Gobold said he believed her injuries were not serious.

He said: “It’s not looking to be life-threatening injuries at this stage.”

Firefighters are now recovering the car from the road and police are directing traffic around the intersection.
