Two people have been taken to hospital after a collision between a truck and a car on the A47, near Mattishall.

The incident involving a black Ford Focus and a recovery truck happened on a single lane section of the A47, near to the Mattishall roundabout, at 11.15am on Tuesday.

A man and a woman were left with neck pain after the accident and they were both taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for further care.

Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening or serious.

Police vehicles along with two ambulance crews, a rapid response vehicle and Norfolk Accident Rescue Service attended the scene.

The collision blocked the Norwich-bound lane and caused a large build up of traffic but it was reopened shortly after 1pm and traffic conditions returned to normal.

Police stayed on the scene to assist with the recovery of the vehicles.
