Police were called at 12.05pm (April 21) to reports of a serious collision between a car and a woman in her 50s on Lawn Avenue.

East of England Ambulance Service sent an ambulance, ambulance officer and East Anglian Air Ambulance.

A spokesperson for the air ambulance said that Anglia One was tasked from Norwich to Great Yarmouth to assist emergency services with the injured woman.
