Traffic was delayed in Swanton Morley, near Dereham, this afternoon after a car and a lorry crashed.

The crash at 2.25pm created a diesel spill in Mill Street which was cleared just before 4pm, according to a Norfolk police spokesman.

An HGV lorry and Ford Focus car were involved and the passenger and driver of the car, including a 26-year-old woman, were taken the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital with neck pain.

Police and paramedics were called after the crash happened close to the Rectory Road junction but firefighters were not needed.

Light soil was used to absorb the diesel.
