Police officers were called to Nelson Road Central in Great Yarmouth on Tuesday at 9.40pm after a black Toyota Celica crashed into the front of The Albion pub, rolling onto its side and hitting a pedestrian.

Paramedics and firefighters attended, and both the pedestrian and driver of the car were taken to James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston for treatment for minor injuries.

A spokesman for Norfolk Constabulary said the pedestrian was “very lucky” to escape without serious injury.

As of Wednesday morning, both men remained in hospital.
