A man has been airlifted to hospital with serious injuries after a two-car crash.

The collision happened on Litcham Road at the junction of Hoe Road in Longham, near Dereham, at 5pm on Sunday, September 8.

Police officers were at the scene of the incident last night, which the force has described as a serious, but the road has now been reopened.

Firefighters from Dereham also attended the crash.

A man was flown to hospital by the East Anglian Air Ambulance with serious injuries and a woman was taken to hospital by ambulance with minor injuries, according to Norfolk Police.

The Litcham road was closed between Longham and Gressenhall while officers carry out initial enquiries at the scene.

Speaking just before 8am, a Norfolk Police spokeswoman confirmed the road had been reopened to drivers.

Officers would be keen to hear from any witnesses to the collision or anyone with dashcam footage.

Anyone with any information should contact Sgt Chris Harris at the roads and armed policing team on 101, or send an email to quoting incident reference number 286 of Sunday, September 8.
