The co-owner of a Norwich B&B "couldn't believe her eyes" after a lorry crashed through her garden wall.

The vehicle smashed into the wall of Arrandale Lodge in Earlham Road on the roundabout which leads to Colman Road and Farrow Road at 10.50am on Tuesday, February 1.

Silver Morgan said her husband, William Morgan, witnessed the crash as he stood in their bedroom on the ground floor. 

And as she went outside to take a closer look, Mrs Morgan said the wheels of the lorry were still turning - but it had become lodged.

"We're relieved that no one was out there at the time and our dog was inside at the time too," said the 40-year-old.

"And hopefully the driver is okay. I'm sure it was terrifying for him."

Police, three fire engines and an ambulance also attended the scene.

Mrs Morgan said they were also temporarily evacuated from the building due to a fuel leakage from the lorry. 

The vehicle was removed and the roads were reopened at about 3pm.
