Emergency services were called after a van crashed into a bungalow - prompting fears of a gas leak.

Police were called at around 4.25am on Saturday, following reports of a collision on Middlemarch Road in Dereham.

Officers discovered upon arrival that a van had crashed into the property, although no one was in at the time.

Due to a smell of gas being detected, two fire crews were mobilised as a precaution and an engineer from British Gas was also sent to ensure the scene was safe.

No arrests were made and enquiries are ongoing in order to establish circumstances surrounding the collision.

Part of the building has been covered with protective sheeting.
