Two more men have been arrested following a crash after a police car chase.

One man was arrested on Thursday (September 5) on suspicion of dangerous driving and drug driving after a black Ford Focus being pursued by police collided into two cars in Gorleston.

The Focus had failed to stop for officers on the Breydon Bridge in Great Yarmouth at around 2pm resulting in officers following the vehicle.

As it entered the A47 slip road towards the A143 Beccles Road it was involved in a collision with two vehicles which resulted in subsequent collisions with four other vehicles in standing traffic.

Two passengers in the Ford Focus were taken to the James Paget Hospital with serious injuries.

The driver of the Focus suffered minor injuries which did not require hospital treatment.

Two other people were also treated for injuries.

A man in his 20s was arrested at the scene on suspicion of driving offences including dangerous driving and drug driving and remains in police custody.
