Fire crews from Carrow and Sprowston were called to the scene shortly after, to assist the ambulance service.

Significant damage could be seen to the front of the lorry, as recovery work was under way at around 9am.

A spokesperson for the East of England Ambulance Service said it sent a rapid response car to the scene to treat one person, but that they did not need to be taken to hospital.

A wall in Old Library Wood was destroyed in the crash, along with a mural created by volunteers last year.
