Police were called after a car overturned in Potter Heigham Picture: Archant Library.


A motorist and two child passengers escaped serious injury after the car they were travelling in overturned in Potter Heigham.

The vehicle - a blue Peugeot - was on Long Lane at around 8am on Monday morning when it veered off the road and rolled.

The three occupants of the vehicle - a woman and two children - needed to be rescued from the vehicle by firefighters, but a police spokesman said they escaped without any serious injuries.

A spokesman from the East of England Ambulance Service said the woman was taken to the James Paget University Hospital for treatment for neck and back pain, but her injuries were not serious or life-threatening.

The two children were assessed by paramedics at the scene, but required no further treatment.

Two fire appliances - one from Martham and one from Stalham - attended the incident, along with the police.

With the vehicle off the carriageway, however, the road itself is not blocked.
