The driver of a Peugeot was taken to hospital after being involved in a crash with a lorry.

Police, ambulance and fire crews were all called to the A1066 east of Thetford at around 7am on Tuesday.

The crash happened at the junction with The Street at Gasthorpe, between Riddlesworth and Garboldisham.

An ambulance took the Peugeot driver to hospital to be treated for a shoulder injury.

The road was closed while the car and the lorry were recovered. It reopened at 9.10am, a spokesperson for Norfolk Police said.

Elsewhere, a Ford Galaxy and a Land Rover Freelander were involved in a crash on the NDR at around 7.45am.

Neither driver was injured in the crash, which happened at the Thorpe End roundabout.

The drivers exchanged details at the scene and the cars have since been moved off the road.

Both crashes came after another earlier this morning at Thickthorn, which involved a white Audi and a white Hyundai.

And overall it's been a busy morning on Norfolk's roads, with delays on the A47 due to roadworks and the closure of Thorpe Road in Norwich also causing tailbacks.
